NEW INDIEGOGO FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN!
The 12 AND UNDER SUPER COOL POETRY OPEN MIC!!
10-Year Old Poet, King Moore, hopes to raise funds for his youth poetry open mic & workshop series.
12 and Under Super Cool Poetry Open Mic!!
King plans to continue to host his SUPER COOL OPEN MIC in spaces all over the city of Detroit and around the country. A series of workshops will support the open mic series.
"King did a very successful open mic at Good Cakes and Bakes in Detroit. Kids showed up, but he noticed that many of them didn't bring poems. We spoke about this afterward, and I offered to do workshops before the open mic, so he could just focus on hosting." - jessica Care moore, Poet, King's Mom. "We are very excited that the culminating performance will be hosted by the world-famous Motown museum, Hitsville USA, in the summer. We will also be using the grant money to pay for a collection of poems created by the kids in all the workshops."
Moore continues, "It's about empowering him to empower his peers. He's much cooler than me. I am very proud of this youth advocacy work he is doing at such a young age. Our kids don't have to wait to be heard. Their voices are important and we need them now more than ever."
