Workshop - Walking The Line (CoastWord Festival)

  • Dunbar Town House Dunbar High Street Dunbar, Scotland, EH42 United Kingdom (map)

Spoken word poetry is often lauded as the perfect art-form for direct, one-person, political address. It is spoken of as an urgent, increasingly important art-form that perfectly marries the personal and the political. But how to draw on personal experience to create work that is both entertaining and hard-hitting? How can a writer/ performer walk the line between the personal, the private and the universal, particularly when writing from lived experience?

Join spoken word poet and performer Jenny Lindsay, for a workshop that will share tips and exercises Jenny herself has used in creating her new solo show, This Script, which uses poetic memoir to ultimately strive for solidarity, empathy and a call to action.
