Intro to Poetry and Spoken Word Virtual Summer Camp


Write the World’s Poetry and Spoken Word camp is designed for writers of all levels to try their hand at poetry in the space of a supportive community. Students will read, watch, and listen to powerful poems; explore a variety of forms, from found poetry to free verse and ekphrastic; learn together about techniques that can enhance their message, from enjambment to alliteration; and, most importantly, consider how poetry can help us share our voices and visions with the world.

Intro to Poetry and Spoken Word Virtual Writing Summer Camp for Teens (ages 13-19)

Schedule: July 10th – July 14th 2023, 7:00 pm-8:30 pm ET

During workshop sessions, you’ll engage in interactive writing activities, connect with peers around the world, and work together to grow your poetry skills.

Between workshop sessions, you may be asked to work independently (and asynchronously) on writing prompts and activities, guided by peer and expert reviews, at your own pace, for approximately 1-2 hours, depending on your facilitator’s workshop plan. You will also receive individualized feedback that will strengthen your poetry.

*Please note that we require all participants to appear on either video or audio during online group meetings (video is preferred, but not required).

A Zoom link to join us for our live, virtual online poetry writing camp will be provided via email prior to the start date. Stay tuned!
