On Saturday I’m teaching a Slam, Jam Poetry Workshop to young writers, ages 8-12. It’s being held at the Redmond Library from 1:00-3:00 p.m. and is free to young writers. We are going to be talking about writing poems which can be performed, trying our hands at a few poems drawn from life experience and those things which fire us up, and then looking at how to perform the poems we write for the Poetry Coffeehouse which takes place on Saturday, April 23.
I’m going to be sharing with the young writers some of the poems written and performed by Button Poetry poets.
The following are poems I’ll be sharing in the workshop:
