My Pen As My Mirror and Window

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A pen has the power to allow you to criss cross dimensions of time. A pen in your hand is a soul propelled instrument; now imagine the fuel of an instrumental accompanying you and your pen as you engage in a free-writing experience. The presence of the instrumental creates pathways for your writing to take you to places within your experiences, and plans for your hopes and expectations. Participants will prepare and present hip hop free-writes in small groups and learn strategies for integrating this style of free-writing into various learning environments. Participants will have the opportunity to evaluate their hip hop free-write to see what themes come up that represent their personal mirror (internal reflections) and personal window (external projections). The goal will be to produce an electronic anthology of participant's selected hip hop free-writes.
