Reading your Work to an Audience - a Workshop with the Poetry Divas

Poetry Divas

Would you like to build up confidence in reading your poems aloud on stage? Or to an audience of any kind.

Are you looking for advice and tips on how to improve?

This workshop is not about strictly performance poetry and or reciting poems; it’s about poetry in performance, for an audience.

As well established poets and performers of their own poetry, The Poetry Divas will focus in this workshop on the art of performing poetry for others. They will discuss rhythm, emphasis, dramatic pause, timing, movement, flair and nerves. After polishing your performance skills, the workshop will culminate in a performance to put them into practice in front of an audience.

Please bring along a few poems which you would like to work on, or poems by another poet which you would like to perform. And an audience around 8pm. All welcome but numbers are limited. Pre-book or first come, first served.

We will be blurring the Wobbly boundaries between Page and Stage in  a Workshop with The Poetry Divas at Rua Red Arts Centre as part of the Red Line Festival in Tallaght. Organised by South Dublin County Libraries.

Friday 18th October at 6.30pm Admission €12/€8

Places limited, book early to avoid disappointment! Places are booking fast.

Minimum age 16

This workshop is aimed at ostensibly poets but is applicable to short prose also.

Good golly, I'd pay more than Euros to get to that.
