ONE MIC ARTISTIC DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Danielle Shorr, 2016 One Mic Artist in Development
Say Word selects the most committed to participation in One Mic, a year-long artist development program. The selected poet will have the chance to participate in education, training, writing and performance workshops, and learn specific skills such as creating a bio, cultivating a fan base, booking, and building a set list. In addition, the poet in development will work with Say Word staff and volunteers to create a single piece of work (including but not limited to a manuscript, stage production, CD, multi-media production or any other poetry focused creation).
