Word@4F is back to host a spoken word workshop and open mic for high school students. For this month’s session, Roya Marsh will co-facilitate.
In an interactive spoken word and writing workshop, teens will learn about and discuss spoken word as an art form, and will participate in writing exercises aimed at improving and promoting creativity and verbal self-expression. After the workshop, teens will have the opportunity (but are not required) to perform their pieces (new and old) in front of their peers and Word Up’s general audience. Although attendance at the workshop is encouraged, it is not required for participation at the open mic.
