Waterline will feature storyteller Kimberly Gotches and showcase many of Teen Writers and Artists Project‘s teen poets, plus Director Diana Zwinak and Teaching Artists Adam Gottlieb, Corey Dillard and Shayne Morgan Phillips at our next event on Sunday, December 18th, at 7 PM. As always, the event is held at Water Street Studios, 160 S. Water St., Batavia, IL.
T-WAAP (TEE-wop) is hard at work right here in the western suburbs. In addition to 3 Wordplay writing workshops, open mics, and featured performers monthly, they offer school assemblies, mentor poetry teams, and host the annual spoken word poetry competition, Slammin’ the Sun Down, a preliminary event for poets preparing for Chicago’s famous Louder Than A Bomb competitions in February and March. Watch the T-WAAP video for a look at what they are up to!
T-WAAP is poised to make its programs available to many more teens in the next few years. We are offering you a front-row-seat experience and a look behind-the-scenes as young poets hone their craft, reveal their fears and heartaches, and share their insights, energy and enthusiasm.
Admission is $5 ($3 for students).
No Open Mic on Dec. 18th.
We’ll have craft beer from Solemn Oath Breweries for $5, wine from Bright Angel Wines for $5 and fantastic food from Gaetano’s Market!
