Spoken Word Problem Solving
Johanna Lyman, NextGen Orgs
Learn how free-style writing/spoken word poetry can be used to effectively and creatively solve problems and untangle gnarly issues in life. Participants will have the opportunity to write from prompts after listening to 2-3 spoken word pieces, then share their insights and their work with others.

The idea for this workshop came from spoken word poet, In-Q: https://in-q.com. I've been a slam poet, doing In-Q-style work mostly with troubled teens, for the past 7-8 years.
