Verbal Blend has allowed me to become a more comfortable poet in public as well as guiding me the right direction towards forms I’ve never been exposed too. Thanks to this program I have become a more intuitive writer and sincerely comfortable in the craft.

The Poets Learning Community brings together student poets interested in telling, writing, publishing, and performing their diverse stories through spoken-word poetry, hip-hop, and slams. Through a series of Verbal Blend workshops, interactions with nationally recognized poets, and a trip to the Harriet Tubman House students will engage, entertain, and affect campus and community with their poetry. Students in the learning community will be mentored by upper-class students in the Verbal Blend poetry program.
