Poetic Visions 2023 Poetry Workshop
Presented by writer, poet and spoken word artist Kevin Campbell (A.K.A. NoirJente), Introduction to Poetry Slam will cover the history of the art form (which might be older than you think), as well as various facts and observations on Poetry Slam. We will discuss some of the various formats poetry slams can take, different strategies used by successful and well-known poets, and view and discuss a few really great examples of performance poetry. This is the first in a series of three poetry workshops in conjunction with Poetic Visions 2023.
There is no cost to participate, but RSVP is required as space is limited. Participants can call the Museum at (386) 734-4371 to reserve a spot.
