WordXWord, in partnership with The Hub, is forming a poetry/spoken word group (team) for young voices, ages 14 - 19. The group will offer a supportive environment and a commitment to fostering the voices of the next generation of poets and change makers with writing, bonding and performance opportunities for young people to explore the power of language.
Participants will attend weekly, peer-driven meetings, May - August, to write, share, explore, bond, collaborate, and celebrate. In an accepting, supporting environment, team members will develop individual and group pieces for a feature program during the WordXWord Festival in August.
This is a team experience and - as with any other team - regular attendance and commitment will be expected. At the first session team members will set mutual expectations and participation requirements.
