20 Feb Be Real, Be Brave: Exploring Poetry in Performance
With Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer
You have something to say, but your knees are knocking and your voice is shaking. How do you get your words off the page and into your voice, your body? This workshop is for poets interested in improving presentation skills, or for anyone who wants to feel more self-assured and comfortable when speaking in front of a crowd. The goal? Authenticity. The keys? Play and Practice. So we’ll play with and practice how to relax before you go on stage, how to connect with an audience, how to introduce your work, how to choose appropriate material, how to make your presentation more engaging, how to vary volume and pacing, how to inhabit your body, how to memorize, and more.
No experience necessary.
