Poetry & Performance Workshop
Led by Erica Fabri
Fridays, April 20th – June 8th @ 4:30-6:30pm
The tradition of being a poet is an ancient and global practice; however, being a New York City poet has always been, and still is, its own rare and magic animal. In this writing workshop we will analyze and discuss powerful examples of poets that lived and wrote in the five boroughs (including Urban Word NYC Youth Poets and Mentors past and present); we will then write our own poems inspired by this city; creating the next generation’s voice of the #NYCPOET.
This program is geared towards high school juniors & seniors who want their creative critical voice to soar over the tedium of the college application process. Using spoken word and hip-hop as inspiration, we will write high-quality college application essays and explore numerous scholarship opportunities. This workshop will put you on track to get into college, and earn scholarships.
