WORDSPEAK Tigertail's teen spoken word project
with Emanuelee Bean

WordSpeak includes workshops, slams and performances, and a week-long residency by Emanuelee Bean, the nationally-respected performance poet, playwright and educator otherwise known as Outspoken Bean. Bean is a Texas Poet Laureate nominee, and ranked 9th in the Individual World Poetry Slam in 2013.

Bean will conduct workshops in area high schools during his residency. These workshops will culminate in a teen slam at Miami Beach Botanical Garden. This slam will aid in the selection of Tigertail's WordSpeak team, which we will send to the annual Brave New Voices teen spoken word competition in July. Outspoken Bean coaches the Houston team that competes in Brave New Voices each year, so he is well acquainted with the skill set needed by these teens. He will perform at Books & Books on Friday, February 26. These events are free and open to all.
