Guess who’s back in town? Emilie Zoey Baker has returned to Melbourne High School for another crowd-raising series of spoken word workshops (Shhh… we won’t tell them it’s poetry). If today’s year 9 assembly was any indication of how engaged our students are going to be with poetry – slam poetry or spoken word poetry – then it’s going to be a wild ride.
We had a poetry slam competition: 3 awesome spoken word poets and some mean judges. What’s going on with that?!
Judging by the amount of cheering and booing in Mem Hall, everyone had a great time. Thanks, Emilie.
