Write to Speak – Spoken wordshop, with Miles Merrill
May 29, 2021
Maitland Regional Art Gallery
You’re presenting your latest project to your colleagues. You notice they’re checking phones, distracted, nodding off. Start with a story, a poem, lyrics… take them on a journey. Your golden trail message lights up the dark column and chart forest.
This workshop teaches you to capture listeners and hold them. It also teaches how to win a poetry slam
Do you think about performing your work when you’re going through the writing process? What happens when you publish? You will read to a live audience to sell your books.
Knowing how to speak to an audience is essential.
The award-winning founder of Australian Poetry Slam and author of “Slam Your Poetry – Write a Revolution“, Miles Merrill, presents this hands-on workshop.
You will find new ways to use stories and poetry to get your message across. From drafting and editing to performance and audience interaction. Take these skills to a poetry slam, a business presentation or a reading tour of your latest publication.
(Ticket price includes entry to the IF we SLAM! poetry competition and Pourhouse drink voucher at the event).
