Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 12: Poems On Stage: Exploring Poetry Out Loud

In "Exploring Our Values Through Poetry," a Tapestry of Faith program

This workshop begins the preparations for a Poetry Slam. Asking youth to perform for non-peers is a challenge. Think back to such a performance you might have had in your youth or childhood. Did you volunteer to perform or was it thrust upon you? Were you anxious during your preparations? Who helped you? Was the final result an affirming experience? If not, what would have made it so? Realize that any steps you take to help youth remember the Poetry Slam as a positive experience are important. Never underestimate the valuable role you play in the lives of participants. Hold and cherish this knowledge.
