Tigertail Productions’ Wordspeak is an ongoing and life-changing teen spoken word program for 1,000 inner city South Florida teens. Wordspeak events provide Miami teens, ages 13 to 19 years old, the opportunity to learn more about spoken word as a way to express themselves, in an appealing medium that blends poetry, theater and hip hop culture. In Wordspeak they develop their writing, speaking and performance skills all while learning teamwork.
The Tigertail Wordspeak team is of National scale and recognition, having been invited to perform on HBO’s Brave New Voices for the last eight years. Brave New Voices presented by Russell Simmons, is a massive event sponsored by HBO and is considered the Olympics of spoken word with over 500 teens and 50 teams. For the past four years the Wordspeak team has made it to the finals and Panther Coffee is proud to host this year’s team prior to their appearance on HBO.
Come support the TigerTail Wordspeak team at Panther Coffee from 7:00 – 8:00 on August 5, 2013 and witness Miami’s rising literary youth talent.
