Program Information: Creating & Marketing Poetry/Spoken Word

Thanks to a collaboration between ArtWorks for Milwaukee, Inc. and The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, we are thrilled to offer the following Summer 2010 program:

Creating & Marketing Poetry/Spoken Word
Lead Artist: Dan Vaughn

This summer, our program team will work together to create a chapbook of original poetry, as well as create an audio CD of our poems being read aloud. We will present this work at a poetry reading at the end of the program that will be open to the public, and we will pursue a variety of opportunities to market and sell the poetry chapbook and audio CD. This program will be broken down into 2 main phases:
Phase I: Becoming knowledgeable about poetry/spoken word and the processes that go into creating it.
Phase II: As a team, designing and creating the chapbook and audio CD of our work.
