Today’s committee meeting was a time to practice performing my poem. As each person got up to perform, the rest of the group turned their backs. As soon as someone heard an impactful or relatable line, they would turn around to face the person performing. This was enlightening. I got to find out exactly what people liked about my poem, and what they thought was less impactful. My poetry grew a lot from this. I felt inspired and connected to everyone on Slam. I am excited to develop my poem more and make more connections with the other Slammers. I’m so excited for the next committee meeting!
