Salisbury Poetry Week: Special Two-Day Teen Writing Workshop on Spoken Word with Fenix Youth Project's Amber Green!
Open to all teens, middle and high school. Drop in for one day or both!
Are you a poet or a writer and want to try your hand at spoken word poetry? Maybe you’re a regular writer of poetry and just want to try something new and get fresh inspiration. Spoken Words use phrases that project onto the minds of the listeners like vivid images, sounds, actions and other sensations. The workshops will help you create imagery your listeners will see, smell, feel and maybe even taste just by the way you say your words. Even if you are not a writer yet and you want to learn how to get what’s in your head on paper.
Participants will have an opportunity to read aloud their own poem, after the groups’ interpretation of their poem.
Co-sponsored by ESWA & the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council.
You do NOT need to download Zoom to attend, but you do need to register to get the Zoom link. Please note that the Zoom link will be sent to your email inbox 24 hours in advance.
ABOUT AMBER GREEN:
Dedicated to empowering our country’s future leaders and marginalized groups, Amber has served as a Youth Development Specialist for her local city government, sits on both the Youth Development Advisory Committee and Human Rights Advisory Committee, and founded Fenix Youth Project Inc., a creative arts youth development 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on empowering youth to make social change while using art as a tool.
Amber studied English literature with a concentration in communications at the Historically Black University, The University of Maryland Eastern Shore. It was there she fell in love with digital media storytelling. Her passion for the community proved to be an asset as she took her skills in video production, web design, social media management, and research to enhance her ability to become an advocate for juvenile justice and other social justice issues.
Programming was made possible through an educational grant from the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council awarded by the Maryland State Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
