Teen Workshop: The Hill We Climb

May 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free
Part of “Take the Mic” series for One Book, One Philadelphia 2021. This workshop series for teens focuses on writing and performing poetry.

“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 session, “The Hill We Climb,” participants will explore the intersection of social justice and arts activism by writing poetry about the America they wish to live in.

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.
