Product Description

"The Poetry Lounge" is a free, multicultural open-forum for self-expression, inspiring young people to find their own voice and let it be heard. Hosted by award-winning Def Poets Shihan and Poetri, the "Lounge" has become the largest weekly open mic forum in the country, and was one of the inspirations for Russell Simmons' Tony-winning show, "Def Poetry Jam". Learn the fundamentals of writing and performing "spoken word" poetry from some of the most accomplished poets of the movement.

"They (poets) speak eloquently of the healing power of this form of self-expression and offer encouragement to aspiring young poets." -- Educational Media Reviews Online, January 14, 2005
