Spoken Word (Slam!) Poetry Workshops for Teen Girls

Life is stressful, especially as a teen. Join Urbana Poet Laureate, Ashanti Files, and spoken-word artist, Shaya Robinson, as they facilitate workshops that teach you how to use writing to reduce stress through:

  • Identity exploration.
  • Self-expression.
  • Strength-building.

Details:

  • All girls welcome, especially those who have experienced prejudice due to race, gender, and age.
  • These free sessions take place every other Thursday, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. from September 8 through December 15.
  • Please register to attend.
  • More about the facilitator: Shaya Robinson is a spoken word artist who teaches poetry as a tool to reflect on social and racial injustices.
