The students will have the opportunity to workshop their own original work in preparation for an evening performance. After the workshop session, students and professional performers will take the stage together to perform in a special edition of Working Group Theatre's monthly spoken word show, Was the Word, in collaboration with Iowa Youth Writing Project, Mission Creek Festival, and Poetry Out Loud.
