Speak Your Truth: Spoken Word Workshop
About The Session

It's a writing and performance-based workshop for teens and adults to explore the power of poetry, writing, and self-expression. We'll be working on developing various key skills through writing and theatre-based exercises, and other techniques. The workshop will lead to participants producing a piece of writing that they can continue working on beyond the workshop, and even share in the performance session the following day.
