This class is free and you do not need to pay or apply for a scholarship. Instead, to join this class fill out this form. DO NOT use any of the other buttons or links to apply to this class.

In this class, participants will explore techniques and genius of spoken word poetry. Writers will study both the words and the performances of world renowned spoken word poets while exploring their own voices. We will study poets who have excelled in both literary and performance spaces, and think critically about what makes them successful in each context. All writers of all experience levels are welcome!

Who Should Register?

Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who face challenges due to cost, language skills, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that all voices must be spotlighted with the range and fullness they deserve.

These programs are offered tuition-free thanks to the support of generous donors who are committed to our mission of ensuring all voices are heard.
