Spoken Word Poetry

By Shamma Raghib

Come take part in the Imagination Club workshop where we explore the art of self-expression.

Spoken word is not just an art form, it's a movement. It is known that Spoken word poetry has moved and provoked thought to people.

Why spoken word? The answer is very simple. Creativity can flourish, positivity is bred, and respect brings a community together.

In this workshop, you will create spoken word and performance poetry pieces, and learn to practice basic concepts and strategies to support good and dynamic writing.

You will learn how to bring your words to life in a range of innovative poetic forms.

In a mentoring environment, your work will be supported by writing exercises, short assignments, demonstrations, screenings, discussions, and critique.

The class will conclude with a performance event where you and other participants may feature your work before the live audience if you want to.
