Teen Poetry Series

WORDPLAY: Teen Poetry Workshops at The Field Library


Tues. March 12 & 19, April 2 & 9 @ 3:30 PM

Open Mic Performance:
Sat. April 13 @ 1:30 PM

The Field Library presents WORDPLAY, an innovative series for Teens & Tweens in middle school and high school that combines the writing techniques of poetry with the theatrical performance element of spoken word.

The series offers 4 dynamic workshops culminating with an Open Mic Performance where participants can share their creations with an intimate audience.  Each hour-long workshop provides guidance in expression, introspection, public speaking, constructive criticism, editing, and teamwork.  Workshops will provide a supportive community and a place to receive feedback and new ideas.  The series is led by local poet, Ibrahim Siddiq, with guest spoken word artists each week. Pizza & snacks will be served.

WORDPLAY is generously underwritten by a grant from the H.O.P.E. For Youth Foundation, supporting HudsonValley youth programs that foster healthy growth and positive achievement.
