Slam Poetry is an art form where performance meets reality. It is used to show one’s story, to speak and breathe life into a poem. Spoken word is an outlet, a voice for sharing a funny moment, grappling with challenges, celebrating joys, or speaking out against injustices. We will study the works of traditional and contemporary poetry that will help inform and strengthen our own writing. In this camp, students will be provided with their own personal “slam kit” to bring their words from page to stage. There are two prerequisites for all participants: Open mind. Open heart. The world is eager to hear you!
