    A week-long residency provides an opportunity for me to invest in all of students in your school. This provides an incredible boost to creative writing and literacy.

Choose What's Best For You

Slam Poetry is a Teacher's Best Friend

I help teachers (like you) get students excited and engaged in creative writing using slam poetry.
Slam isn't like acting, because we don't use costumes or props and it's not like rap or hip-hop, cause there is no music or beats. It's just about words. It's a personal and powerful means of self-expression. Click HERE for a FREE video lesson called, The Power of Words.
