“Spoken-Word Poetry exists to help make people feel heard. It's a way to practice being confident, and sharing your passions and opinions with an audience.”

Bilal Hafda

Bring words alive

In this new workshop, students will work with spoken word artist and creative writing teacher Bilal Hafda from Story Factory to explore different styles of spoken word poetry. The workshop will encourage students to use poetry to express emotions and ideas and communicate dramatic meaning through their own writing as well as how to lift the words off the page to bring them alive for performance.

Participants will develop skills in editing their own writing and then turning it into a performance to successfully convey their ideas.
