Teen Workshop: Where I’m From

May 24 @ 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, “Where I’m From,” teens are invited to creatively explore where they are from and what the world tells them about the people, places, objects, and relationships closest to them.

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.
