Twin Cities: I Will Be Facilitating a Series of FREE Youth Spoken-Word Workshops Through TruArtSpeaks

The Be Heard youth poetry slam series starts in January, and we (TruArtSpeaks) are going to be in a lot of schools between now and then. But we also want to make sure that as many youth as possible have access to us, in case they want to get some feedback, ask some questions, or just build with one another.

So over the next few weeks, I'll be facilitating a series of FREE workshops open to anyone between the ages of 13 and 19. If you're planning on slamming in January, this will be a space to sharpen your skills and work on your craft. Even if you're not into slam, we'll still talk about writing and performance, do some writing, workshop poems, and just share ideas. Feel free to come to one, a couple, or all five:

Saturday, 11/22 at Intermedia Arts; 1-3pm (2822 Lyndale Ave. S. MPLS)
If you can only make it to one, this one is going to be a little more stand-alone than the others, and we'll cover a lot of stuff. It's also a collaboration with Intermedia, so please register for this one at this link.

Wednesday, 12/3 at Rondo Library Room CH (90 W. 4th St. STP); 3-5pm 

Sunday, 12/7 at the Landmark Center Room 408 (75 5th St. STP); 3-5pm 

Friday, 12/12 at MPLS Central Library Room N-402 (300 Nicollet Mall MPLS); 3-5pm

Wednesday, 12/17 at the Landmark Center Room 408 (75 5th St. STP); 3-5pm

Thanks to COMPAS for hooking up the space in the Landmark Center. These should be fun. If you are a young poet, or know any young poets, please spread the word.
