Taking Poetry from the Page to the Stage

Artist: Chris August

Type: Residencies

Description

C.A.’s poetry residency is centered on the creation and performance of at least one poem. See your students enjoy writing while improving their creative writing techniques. Students work collaboratively to edit and perform their pieces and the residency culminates with a reading by students. When time allows, this performance is done in the style of a traditional poetry slam competition.

Pricing

Typically, residencies range from $2,000 to $3,000, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backwards’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.

Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:

  • A kick-off assembly
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session
  • A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
  • A student culminating or sharing event
  • An evaluation meeting

For a rough estimate, residency prices include:

  • Artist assembly (see artist’s page for pricing)
  • A set of workshops ($100 each)
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session ($100 each)
  • An evaluation meeting ($100)
  • Mileage and supply costs depend on artist location and the residency chosen.
