Calling all young poets, writers, emcees and more! Join Discovery Green and Writers in the Schools for a virtual poetry workshop and open mic experience. Free Write offers young writers the chance to participate in a generative writing workshop, perform their original work, and meet other young writers looking to build their poetry and performance skills. Hosted and facilitated by Outspoken Bean, this opportunity is open to young writers ages 13-18 of all skills levels. Registration is required.
