Phoenix Rising is a FREE poetry and spoken word workshop where symbolism and metaphors come to life through writing and storytelling. You will express YOUR creative voice and process emotions that allow you to embrace a new perspective on life experiences.
The Phoenix Rising program combines the articulation of painful events or circumstances in the lives of young people that are struggling; the opportunity to release the pain and fear of those experiences among peers and mentors; and the guidance that allows young voices to use strong, healthy words that encourage an identity based on choice rather than victimization.
