What We Do
Expressions-EWCOC has the privilege of running the Houston VIP Poetry Slam Team. They are a national poetry slam team that represents the city of Houston at the annual National Poetry Slam Competition presented by Poetry Slam Inc. It consists of a five-member team of poets that competes with original poetry following PSI rules. *The views of the poets are not always that of Expressions-EWCOC*
Expressions-EWCOC believes in partnership and community. This program seeks to build community through a joint fundraiser that brings our art to your cause. Stay tuned for the first event of this program February 2015.
Expressions has returned in what started as an experiment of grand proportions. This one-on-one mentorship opportunity partners a professional writer with an aspiring wordsmith. They will be provided with intense focused workshops tailored to strengthen their weaknesses and broaden their horizons. Click the link above for the application and more information.

-An extensive and exclusive writing project that seeks to nurture and develop upcoming artists into tomorrow’s legends. Applicants are selected by a panel of Houston’s finest writers. Fellows will exit the program with a collection of their works and a new-found sense of what it means to be a writer.
