Celebrate the beauty, playfulness, and transformative power of words!
Engage with Bay Area poets, authors, activists, and artists for a multicultural exploration of how the written and spoken word can liberate self-expression, start movements, and honor the community. Through a series of live sessions, you will interact with authors, educators, and performers. Whether you are a beginner or expert, fan or practitioner, you will be inspired by the interactive workshops, presentations, and engaging conversations.
Our first ever SCORES Poetry Summit is free to attend. Plus, each session we will be giving away a SCORES Poetry Gift Bag! The gift bag will include some cool SCORES items and two complimentary tickets to our Rising Voices event scheduled for Wednesday, April 21.
