Mic Check 1, 2, 3: Performing What You Write with Isabella Luna
Spoken word poetry is poetry that is read or performed aloud. It is not altogether different from poetry in books, however, there are a few techniques that can help shift a poem from the page to the stage. Over the course of this workshop, participants will engage in various writing exercises and performance techniques in order to create and perform a spoken word poem.
Open Reading with Isabella Luna and Adara Enthaler
Following the workshop there will be an open mic reading session featuring Isabella Luna and MC’d by Enough Said Poetry Slam host Adara Enthaler. Workshop participants are encouraged to join the open reading and share what they learned, however poetry lovers are also invited to attend and watch.
PLEASE NOTE: Opening reading is a free event, but registrations are required and indicate in the booking process if you would like to do a reading of your work.
