Creators Program- Beyond the Poem
Beyond the poem is a series of exploratory workshops that build community through the art of spoken word poetry. Participants will write, create and share together as they explore and expound upon the one thing they know they have in common, poetry. Weekly we will meet and elaborate on prompts and concepts designed to inspire and highlight the beauty and strength in our differences while connecting us poetically, one line at a time.
