About this course:

This intensive workshop offers support, structure, and guidance for anyone who has a message to deliver. Be it traditional spoken word poetry, speech or sermon delivery, songwriting, or solo performance art, this intensive workshop helps students create material worth standing for, and then helps them raise their voices to meet the moment. The first weekend offers generative writing exercises, small group shares and discussions, lectures on craft, reading aloud of newly-created work, and viewing of performance footage. Over the next month, students edit and fine-tune their pieces and prepare their performance through memorization and practice. On the final weekend, they gather to compile the material for a culminating live performance. Students come away with fresh material, live performance experience, and a taste of collaborative creation. Suitable for all levels of experience in regards to both writing and performance.
