Our Performance Poetry course will introduce you to the techniques of performing the spoken word that is derived from your own creative writing. The course will look at how the written and spoken word differs, conventions of the spoken word, how to break the rules and how to find your own style. The sessions will be fun, inclusive and cater for those with experience as well as beginners. The course will also offer the opportunity to perform your creative work in front of an audience.
This course is suitable for all levels, from beginners to those with some experience who want to refresh their knowledge and hone their performance skills. Previous experience of performing or creative writing would help get the most from the course but these skills are not required. However, attending this class in conjunction with one of WMCs creative writing courses may be helpful. You will also will need to complete an Individual Learning Plan.
