Live! On Stage! Poetry! (Week Three)

Instructor(s): Carol McMahon
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

Poetry is an art form that is meant to be heard as well as read. Through this class we will practice the art of performance poetry; that place where oration, theatre, and writing meld. We will focus on creating some new work designed to be performed out loud for a group, utilize previous work created by the young writers, and also tap into poetry created by other authors. Using dramatic exercises and our words we will explore sound and movement, projection and presence. The final session will culminate in a reading and celebration for friends and family at Writers & Books.
