Hey everyone! I am facilitating spoken word writing and performance workshops this fall at The Button Factory (Waterloo Community Arts Centre, 25 Regina Street South, Waterloo). If you want to work on your spoken word, the time is now!
Speak Your Truth (Spoken word writing and performance workshop series)
You are the expert of your own life. Write your own story, embody your performance and find rhythm in your words.
Spoken word performance and slam style poetry is about sharing truth through words and embodying emotion through presence, tone and performance. In this workshop we will write our own pieces about a topic you know all about: yourself. In the first class we will write, edit and formulate our pieces keeping in mind content, form and writing style. In the second class we will practice performance including what to do with your voice and body. In the third session we will all perform our pieces in a coffee house style slam. Bring an openness to share and be brave, and your stories and poems will come out powerfully.
