SLAM: The Spoken Literature Art Movement series
a performance & literary craft workshop
by Alyesha Wise & Matthew Hernandez
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 Art Movement workshop series. This series has been active for two years, serving more than one hundred students.
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. Past guests have included (but are not limited to!) Tonya Ingram, Edwin Bodney, Yesika Salgado, Beau Sia 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.
