Have you ever listened to a slam poetry session and fallen in love with the rhythm, the passion, the voice, and the expression of the artist? Do you find yourself getting lost in the lyrics of a song? If you've ever wondered what slam poetry is, how to get started, and where you can find a community to share your writing, then you must join this session and get started right away! Together, we'll examine some of the great slam poets: Elizabeth Acevedo, Clint Smith, Jason Reynolds, and many others. Then, it will be time to open our writers' notebooks and do some writing and (voluntary) performing of our own!
Students should bring their laptops.
