"Spoken Word" event for teens
The Town of Greenburgh is launching a "Spoken Word" project for teen poets between 15 and 19 years of age. The inaugural "Spoken Word" event on April 22nd, 2021 will be a virtual one featuring interviews with five poets and their reading of their poems. If you live in or attend school in Greenburgh and would like to be a part of this National Poetry Month event, submit a video of yourself performing one of your poems to firstname.lastname@example.org. Poets can submit up to two videos, each of which must be no longer than five minutes long. Poems may be on any subject. Include your name, age and address with email submissions.
For further information, email Sarah Bracey White, Greenburgh’s Eecutive Director of Arts and Culture, at email@example.com.
