Join us for an open mic night with poet Bobby González. Participants from the Spoken Word 101 workshop series invite you to hear their work and share your own.
SPOKEN WORD 101
Spoken Word 101 is a series of Saturday 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. The series culminates with an open mic night during which the workshop participants will share their completed works with the community.
This event is funded in part by Poets & Writers through public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
