Poetry Out Loud
National Recitation Contest builds on this momentum by inviting the dynamic aspects of slam poetry, spoken word, and theater into the English class (as well as Drama, Forensics, and other appropriated classes).
The Virginia Commission for the Arts is pleased to announce that Virginia will host a second Creative Forces site at the Joint Expeditionary Base at Little Creek, Virginia. A site and program at Fort Belvoir already exists. The Commission is pleased that our own partnership with the NEA and Americans for the Arts along with the Virginia Veterans and Family Support Services will be able to offer enhanced clinical and community support for our active duty military and veterans and their families.
