About the Workshop: In this workshop for teens we’ll develop ideas for poems and improve techniques for publicly speaking them. Wear loose, comfortable clothing for this body focused, fun, (slightly goofy!) and playful workshop that combines voice technique with creative writing. We’ll be working intensely on the poems and having fun learning how the voice can reinforce great ideas on the page.
