Posted: May 11, 2013 - 11:03pm

Zach Gordon Youth Center will offer four, free spoken word workshops over the next two weeks for youth ages 9-21. The workshops, taught by local artist Christy NaMee Eriksen, will focus on creative writing, performance, and diversity.  Spoken word is one component of a series of art classes made possible by a Catalyst Grant from the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council. Workshops are from 5-6pm on May 13, May 16, May 17, and May 21.

In addition to the workshops, the Center will partner with Woosh Kinaadeiyí for this month’s poetry slam and open mic on Friday, May 17, at 6:30 p.m.  This all-ages event is open to the public; attendees are encouraged to pay as you can.  Sign up to read at 6 p.m.

ZGYC is a community youth center, offering free drop in activities such as rock climbing, pool, ping pong, and basketball to youth and families year round. For more information about the workshops, contact Jess Brown at 586-2635.
