Using Poetry to Address Social Issues
From the Griot to the Bard, the Troubadour to the M.C., the power of the spoken word lies in its ability to write and recite a perspective in rhythm with a purpose to uplift the masses. Using poetry’s capacity to respond to and influence social movements as its starting point, this workshop will inform, engage, and inspire participants through written and spoken words of poetry. During this one-session workshop, participants will review notable American Poets, explore various poetic forms and devices, create, share, and receive feedback on original work, and discuss possibilities for independent publishing.
Using Poetry to Address Social Issues takes place Sat. 6/22 from 10a-12p at University Circle United Methodist Church, 1919 East 107th Street, Cleveland.
