Do you have a passion for spoken word but need some help honing your skill?
Words Tell Stories is a performance poetry workshop aimed at teaching you simple techniques to overcome that gnarly writers block or ways to approach a poem whether through visual techniques or writing exercises.
Each person attending is requested to bring in a poem they want to work on or turn into a spoken word piece. We're aiming at a small workshop so please send me a message to let me know you're attending.
Carry pens and paper or a laptop to work on.
Participation fee : Rs 1000
