A few pics from the Youth Poetry Spoken Word Workshop last Saturday in Jacksonville, Florida.
They all have their “lightsabers” aka their rhyme books too!!!
Powerful future authors, speakers, and teachers they will soon become 🙂
A month from now…after, “Santa” finishes climbing down chimneys, lol, and after the New Year rolls in…we are throwing a show!
Join us for an evening of spoken word featuring some of the dopest artists I’ve had a chance to share both studio and stage with. This one is dedicated to the writers!
More info the closer this event gets. Happy Holidays ya’ll.
Last weeks Youth Poetry Spoken Word Workshop was great. We went more in detail about memorization.
Memorization normally means, “committing something to heart.”
In the spoken word world however, it means becoming familiar with your piece to the point it seems more natural and fluid…even if you’re reading from paper or your phone.
It means…getting comfortable with your work to the point where you can share it.
Yesterdays workshop was more difficult because not only was everyone asked to write on the spot…they also were asked to memorize and perform. 😮
They did an awesome job!!! 🙂
I am soo proud of them y’all!
Words can’t express!
I told them, “always remember, the quicker you can write and memorize, the stronger your writing and performance ability will become!”
