Teen Workshop: Take the Mic
June 2 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
“Take the Mic” is a virtual series of spoken word workshops that invites teens to explore the themes of The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo, the 2021 One Book, One Philadelphia Young Adult selection, and their own multiple identities using poetry and theater exercises.
In this culminating session, participants will explore how to perform their poetry and rap using theater and slam poetry techniques.
Each workshop is led by award-winning poet and playwright Joshua A. Campbell along with guest artists, and will culminate in sharing new material. No writing experience or reading of The Poet X is needed to attend, and participants are invited to join one or all workshops.
Registrants will receive a Zoom event link prior to the workshop.
