NOT A CULT & Art Share L.A. have teamed up with Alyesha Wise and Matthew Cuban Hernandez to bring you S.L.A.M., the Spoken Language Arts Movement workshop series.
This 12-week workshop facilitated by Alyesha Wise and Matthew Cuban Hernandez offers extensive development in the creative dimensions of being a poet; understanding the physical nuances of performance poetry, honing your technical abilities, and utilizing your personal narrative to assist in identifying your voice as a writer.
Guest lecturers will accompany the courses to share their expertise in a wide range of literary subjects. Guests include (but are not limited to!) Tonya Ingram, Edwin Bodney, G Yamazawa, and Shihan Van Clief.
Additionally, the course brings in business elements to create a better understanding of how to sustainably develop a career around your work; planning tours, what to look out for in creative contracts, and how to leverage the process of publishing. Participants of the program will refine their work to be included in a newly developed anthology series published by NOT A CULT at the end of the program.
This course takes place Saturday mornings, 10am, at
Art Share L.A., 801 E. 4th Place, Los Angeles, CA 90013.
