Due to the health and safety concerns of COVID-19, WordPlay has very limited events this year. If we do host or participate in an event, our policy is for the event to be outside whenever possible, for students and staff to wear masks and practice social distancing. 

We will continue to monitor health guidelines and re-evaluate any upcoming events in light

of area COVID-positive numbers and other data.

He's performed on stages throughout the country, with works published in theatrical productions, short films produced based on his poetry. Laurent has competed in national spoken word competitions and taught poetry at the high school level. Discovering his passion for poetry at an early age allowed him to find his voice, hone his craft, and master the fundamentals of being a strong spoken word artist, all while creating a unique style that set him apart.
