This workshop will cover the essential elements of every rhyming text: rhythm, meter, cadence, and rhyme scheme, breaking down each element in a way that isn’t intimidating, whether onthe page or the stage. The Poetry Workshop is an introduction to poetry and poetry performance. This workshop will involve two components: writing and performing poetry. Participants will be exposed to a variety of poetry writing styles and templates. For the performance component, skills taught will be drawn from theatre and choral reading techniques. Sessions will be highly engaging and geared at unlocking creativity.
