This masterclass weekend is designed for any spoken word poet who is in the process of creating a full-length spoken word show, or who wants to explore the possibilities of long-form spoken word poetry (20 mins - 60 min show). Whether you have already written your first draft, are at the tentative planning stages, or are someone with a show under their belt but who’d benefit from outside direction, this masterclass is for you. Facilitated by experienced spoken word producer, programmer, director and performer Jenny Lindsay, this weekend will explore the craft of spoken word theatre from initial planning to first draft, offering tips, advice and solid feedback to aid you in creating your show.
