SAY’s Winter 2021 program, The Spoken Word Project, invites young people who stutter to share their powerful voices by using slam poetry, verse, and other spoken word methods. Over 7 weeks, kids and teens will gain confidence and learn new ways to express their thoughts and feelings and advocate for what they believe in. Working together, they will write and perform pieces that explore themes of hope, stuttering, self-empowerment, anti-racism, and equality.
The Spoken Word Project will conclude with our Final Share, where participants will give voice to their words in a supportive and appreciative online space where, as always, everyone has as much time as they need to speak.
All 2020/2021 Confident Voices programming will take place via Zoom Video Conferencing to protect the health and safety of our amazing SAY community.
