Epiphany “Big Piph” Morrow will present a dynamic and interactive workshop focused on creative writing in the hip hop genres. Through exercises, the students will explore their personal stories in parallel with learning about the evolution of hip hop and its world impact. Emphasis will be placed on the values of discipline, creativity, confidence, communication, and respect of others. During this time students will form creative pieces of their own. Big Piph will assist them through the process which includes, but is not limited to topics, writing, delivery, and beat selection. Students will also be given directions on performance techniques for a presentation at the end of the sessions.

Open to Middlebury College students only.
