Event description

Description

It’s part Apollo Theater-style comedy, part hip-hop storytelling, and part dramatic poetry readings. If Spoken Word/Slam Poetry were a person, it could be poet Gil-Scott Heron, comedian Chris Rock, and hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur rolled into one creative force.

Spoken word poetry is a modern twist, combining storytelling, hip-hop, theater, comedy and political/social activism. Slam poetry takes it to a higher level – into competitive poetry and the heart of spoken word movement made popular by shows like HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, as well as Button Poetry and Slam Find’s YouTube channels.

The Hudson County Community College (HCCC) Spoken Word/Slam Poetry workshop with Jersey City Slam Master Mark Skrzypczak can help transform attendees into the next Slam Poetry superstars. Writers and performers – regardless of experience – are invited to dig out their notebooks of musings, observations, or lyrics, and turn their comedies, poetry, or social commentaries into art forms. The workshop includes a brief overview of poetry slam, writing prompts, performance exercises, in-class performance, and critique.
