The Gantt Center is offering a free poetry writing and performance workshop on January 14th, 2011, from 12pm to 1pm, on their 4th floor pavilion. Immediately afterwards, there will be a teen poetry slam, also free, so come on out and hear what these teens have to say.
From the website:
Join the Respect Da Mic Poetry Slam Team as we bring you an afternoon of poetry.
Starting at noon, the pen meets the paper. The Respect Da Mic Slam Team will facilitate a writing and performance workshop for the poet within you. If you are just beginning your journey, or if you are a seasoned writer in need of different tools to enhance your work, this workshop will help you to stretch your writing potential.
This is for everyone and it’s FREE!
