Learn the art of performance poetry and spoken word! Each week, we will read contemporary poetry, or watch performances of local and nationally-known spoken word artists, and study the phenomena of Poetry Slam competitions in America. Students will also engage in creative exercises to empower the artist in all of us. No previous poetry experience necessary, although one should have an appreciation for poetry and/or performance. This course will be an opportunity for students to develop their own creative projects, which will contribute to the field of spoken word. For the term project, students will produce a spoken word event and/or poetry publication.
