Slam Poetry Camp

READ. WRITE. RECORD.

Hosted in partnership with WrapAround Orange, an organization that strives to “make sure that a child’s first contact with the Juvenile Justice system is their last”, Page 15’s Slam Poetry Camp provides a safe, positive outlet for high schoolers struggling with a variety of social and emotional challenges. During this one-week camp, students work with Orlando’s most talented poets to write their very own poem. At the end of the camp, students record their poem in a recording studio, publish it in a chapbook, and perform it live for friends and family. This amazing program empowers young poets through the use of language for self-expression.

Page 15’s Slam Poetry Camp schedule will be available in 2016.

“The writing instruction Page 15 provided was vital to the development of our youth. Showing [them] the fun of writing was a truly invaluable service. Their stories of overcoming bullying, family problems and school problems will be used as tools to further reach out to other youth in our community.” –
