Spoken Word 101 is a series of Tuesday workshops exploring the differences between performance and other types of poetry led by multicultural motivational speaker, storyteller and poet Bobby González. Participants will learn how to improve word choice, create more powerful imagery, and hone and express their own style and delivery. In addition to being taught meter and rhyme, participants will be shown how they can infuse their native tongue and urban vernacular in their poetry. Free and open to everyone!
This event is funded in part by Poets & Writers with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
