“Slamming” is poetry written and performed by the poet. This powerful performance builds a meaningful connection with students through the delivery of heart stirring, real-life poetry, creating an incomparable literary experience that is both dramatic and humorous. In three optional workshops following the performance, students write and perform their own slam poetry and create their own individual “soul portraits.”

Program price includes single performance and 3 workshops (30 attendees per workshop) or two performances.
