SLAM Cycle 5

11:00 AM—2:00 PM
  • This event has passed.

This is a 12-week, extensive group workshop series taught by our lead instructors and exceptional guest facilitators from across the country.

Workshop is open to any poets ages 13 and up. Participants under 18 must attend with an authorized adult.

The goal each Saturday of every workshop cycle is to get the student to engage, and challenge their skills, in writing and performance in ways that also challenge them as an individual.

Workshops are split into about 1.5 hours of writing instruction followed by 1.5 hours of performance instruction.

Workshop topics are wide and touch on everything that can assist new and seasoned writers, from resume building to movement to poem structure. Some of our students have attended (and graduated from) more than one cycle and have not received the same experience twice.

Past guest instructors include Beau Sia, Yesika Salgado, Shihan Van Clief, Buddy Wakefield, Edwin Bodney and more.

Since our workshop series started in the fall of 2017, we’ve successfully graduated 34 alumni.

Price: $40 per class or $400 for all 12 (when paid in advance)

limited scholarships available. alumni get 50% off.
