FROM THE PRESENTER
Children and adults alike enthusiastically embrace poetry through SpreadLove poetry workshops. Dissecting both written & oral tradition, Lance G Newman II instructs his students to read and write poetry with a broader understanding of poetical devices. Explore poetical devices such as: wordplay, alliteration, personification, metaphors, satire, and many other techniques that are used to compose original works. After participants compose their written poetry, they practice memorization and stage presence techniques.

Spoken-word poetry derives from folklore which is the art of storytelling. Not only has humanity’s history been vividly recorded by such method but challenging qualms and also affirmations of hope. Spreadlove is certain that you have a story to share.
