About this program

An introduction to writing personal narratives using the techniques of storytelling and free verse poetic expression. Through short captivating performances, Jamaal will demonstrate the power of spoken word. Participants will have a chance to discover the natural cadence of writing using standard and forced rhymes that would be similar to the speakeasy era of the 60’s, while understanding the relevance of performing constructed pieces for an audience that affects emotional responses and critical thought.
