We all know what is in the gap between who we are and the best version of ourselves. As we explore the
power of Spoken Word, this series will intricately connect a classroom as we explore different writing prompts
and devices that elicit our creativity, challenge our views on how we value ourselves, and rebuild sound
self-esteem. We can end our session with performances or record our poems and have a listening party
celebrating our completed pieces.
