Poetry and Spoken Word Scribes, 9-12th grade
Students will delve into the craft of spoken word poetry, immersing themselves in diverse forms of poetic expression and techniques. Students will engage with a wide variety of work from carefully curated poets and will participate in generative activities, craft exercises, and experiences designed to inspire their imaginations. This camp will be facilitated by two local artists: Naa Akua and Matt Gano, both of whom are published poets, performers, and educators; it will also feature guest teaching artists. This camp will culminate with a performance of student work and the option for students to contribute a chosen piece to a digital anthology of their work.
This camp is for students entering 9th-12th grade in Fall 2021 and will take place online using Zoom and Google Classroom. All camps will break for lunch from 12-1pm each day.
