Through the literary and performing arts, Southern Word offers creative solutions for youth to build literacy and presentation skills, reconnect to their education and lives, and act as leaders in the improvement of their communities. Southern Word primarily engages youth with spoken word, also known as performance poetry, a proven literacy tool that positively impacts youth identity, engagement, and communication. Southern Word conducts writing and music production residencies, workshops, and performances during and after school, on college campuses, and through other community partnership programs. Spoken word pedagogies embrace a holistic approach which speaks to a wide range of English Language Arts standards and addresses recurring challenges faced by educational systems.
