Spoken word is a very powerful thing. It can give strength through the delivery of its words and courage through its resounding message.
A group of East Aurora students — aptly called Verbal Courage — have found that out.
EAHS student poets in the Triple Threat Poetry program are prepping to be the first-ever team from Aurora to compete in Louder than a Bomb . The 11th annual youth poetry slam will be held in Chicago on February 25th.
Professionals with backgrounds in poetry, public speaking and theatre are coaching the Aurora team. The public is invited to VOICES, a preview poetry performance to be hosted at a soon-to-be determined location on the evening of Feb.12th . We’d love to have you!
