ONLINE & IN-PERSON Sessions Begin October 6, 2022!

SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young


The Song & Spoken Word Project:

This ALL NEW, 8-week program welcomes young people who stutter, ages 8-18, to express their ideas and creativity through songwriting and spoken word poetry!

Led by Confident Voices Co-Directors, Kate Detrick & Aidan Sank, and guided by SAY’s amazing teaching artists, Musical Director, Everett Bradley, and special guest musicians & poets, participants will work together on original songs and spoken word poems that explore themes of self-empowerment, hope, stuttering, advocacy, equality, and any other topics they feel compelled to spotlight.

The Song & Spoken Word Project starts on October 6, 2022! Enrollment for Online & In-Person programming is now open with multiple weekly session times available, as detailed below:

SAY Confident Voices Song & Spoken Word Project

No experience with songwriting or poetry is required. As with all of SAY’s Confident Voices programming, we will take a step-by-step and instinctive approach to our sessions, emphasizing empowerment and sharing our powerful voices.

At the end of our 8-week program, participants will have the option to present their work to a supportive, appreciative audience during The Song & Spoken Word Project Online and In-Person Final Shares, with no pressure to perform.

And as always, we will hang out, connect, and have FUN!

Additional Programming:

SAY offers comprehensive programming options to kids & teens who stutter (ages 3-18), both locally in NYC and nationally.
