Virtual 4-H SPIN Club: Spoken Word Poetry

Fridays, April 16 - May 21, 2021
4 - 5 p.m. EST

Online via Zoom Meeting

The Spoken Word Poetry Virtual 4-H SPIN Club is a 6-week virtual 4-H youth program focusing on teaching members how to write their own spoken word poems. During the meetings, we will be showing members the steps it takes to get their ideas on paper and the ins and outs of telling their story in poem form. 

This club will meet virtually via Zoom (both computer and smartphone accessible) every Friday for 6 weeks (6 total meetings). Zoom Meetings will be limited to youth who have enrolled on 4-H Online (4-H Online Link) for the club. Access information, including the meeting's link/password, the material list, and other information, will only be emailed to those who have enrolled on 4-H Online. Failure to enroll may result in you not receiving the email updates or removal of the club. 

If you are new to 4-H and not sure how to enroll, please click on this video link which will show you step by step how to enroll. There is no membership fee to be a Michigan 4-H Member for the 2020-2021 program year. Lance Fowler will also be emailing you on how to enroll in this specific club. While enrolling, please make sure your home county is the primary county and add this club by selecting “Bay County” and scroll down until you see “SPIN Club: Spoken Word Poetry”. 

For existing 4-H members, please make sure you have re-enrolled for the 2020-2021 program year. Here is a video link to show you how to re-enroll for this program year. While re-enrolling, you may add this club by selecting “Bay County” and scroll down until you see “SPIN Club: Spoken Word Poetry”. If you have already enrolled, you can now go back in and add this club to your child's profile. 

As a reminder, there will be no participation fees collected for the current program year so there is no cost to re-enroll, though some specific events may continue to have registration fees. 

The online meeting will be held using the app called Zoom and the link/password for the meeting will be emailed 1-2 business days once you are registered for the club.
