SLAM ON IT!: POETRY FOR THE PAGE, POETRY FOR THE STAGE
This week we'll focus on two very important aspects of writing and speaking our work. We'll be creating images using our five senses /and /learn how to write and perform spoken word poems such as the Rant! The images we create using the world around us and how we perceive it using touch, taste, smell, sound, and sight will make us better writers. Communicating the images we achieve to an audience is just as important as writing them, so we'll be viewing professionals, performance poets and attempting to recreate their power in our own way! Taught by Bianca Spriggs
