Spoken Word Poetry: Online Experience

October 5, 2020 @ 19:00 - October 13, 2020 @ 21:00


Online experience by Chris

What you’ll do
Spoken word is a wonderful art form, and I’d love for us to discover it together! Let’s meet one another by writing about the places that we come from; and all levels of writing experience are welcome!
As a Cleveland, Ohio native, much of my writing revolves around my hometown. I’d love to help you develop a spoken word poem which centers around the space that you call “home”, whether it’s a physical location, the arms of a loved-one, or any space in between!

In my class we will:
– Define and learn about the art form of Spoken Word Poetry.
-Investigate tools that help develop your unique voice and perspective.
-Write a short, timed spoken word piece which revolves around a space you’ve lived in or visited.
-Read our pieces aloud in a virtual “Spoken Word Night” (optional)
-Allow space for constructive tips/feedback, and performance techniques.
-Q & A.

At the end of the day, Spoken Word poetry is all about individual expression. I would be honoured to help you build writing confidence, find your unique voice, and unlock skills that you might not have utilised before! Let’s write together!

How to participate

Join a video call
Download Zoom for free on a desktop or mobile device. After you book, you’ll receive an email with a link and details on how to join.

Some days I’ll broadcast from my home in Cleveland, but other days (when my newborn son seems like he’d be unruly) I’ll move production to my favourite studio in the city!
