Slam Poetry comes to Zug

Submitted by: Elizabeth Meeks, Library Team Leader Zug Campus, ISZL
The art of poetry comes in many forms and we were privileged to have slam poet Harry Baker visit the Zug Campus and showcase Slam Poetry.  Harry is a poetry slam champion involved in many poetry slams including winning the Poetry Slam World Cup 2012.  Harry is quite the lyrical genius and we were delighted he was able to be here inspiring future poets with his assemblies and poetry writing workshops.
Performance poetry is written with the audience in mind and poetry slams are the competitions for these performance poets.  The poet shares his poetry aloud engaging and encouraging the audience to participate.
Harry shared his poetry writing process and enthusiasm during his workshops and highlighted that poetry is for everyone. The students created some amazing poems practicing his techniques. Many were inspired to share their poems not only in class but in a whole school assembly too!
