The Power of Storytelling

This presentation explores the roots and origins of Poetry & Spoken Word and the impact storytelling has in a modern context. Spoken Word elements can be found in Hip-Hop, Rap, Jazz, Theatre and more. Our words and stories matter, whether they are about love, culture, or social change. Poetry is a powerful outlet to use our voice and in this workshop we will seek to discover ours, how to own it and use it through our creative writing.
