Friday! Spoken Word workshop at 7pm, then the slam at 8pm. You must participate in the writing workshop to take part in the Slam. Ages 13-19, oh and it’s FREE! More information on the WITS web site.

An excerpt from Meta-Four’s performance at A Celebration of Story:

Jo:  It’s like it’s not good enough to just be you anymore

Je:  But, that is the best time for you to be you

Eb:  I started by just being

Jo:  I started by experimenting

ALL:  Where we are now began by creating
