Rik's slam poetry sessions are engaging & supportive & were especially valuable for my students struggling with self-esteem & communicating.
The students were entranced. It is one thing to teach the curriculum. It is another to teach its worth in our lives. I highly recommend to other schools.

Slam Poetry was a great opportunity for our students to approach creative writing in a new way. I highly recommend Rik's slam poetry material!
Debra Bridgman, Principal, ON
There was a really powerful exchange of ideas as Rik reinforced some great poetry writing techniques that students could apply to their own writing

STUDENTS LOVE SLAM POETRY
Slam Poetry is a combination of creative writing & creative performance. It's not like rap or hip-hop as there is no music or beats. And it's not like theater or acting as there are no costumes or props...it's just about words.
WHY IT WORKS!
Slam poetry is a great way to engage students in creative writing (writers & non writers alike) It's also a fantastic way to develop a safe & supportive culture in your classroom.
