Performing Your Poems and Stories
21 May @ 18:30 - 20:30
Performing our work to an audience, can be anxiety-inducing, even for the seasoned performers amongst us but what if there were ways to perform better, clearer, and bolder both with and without a microphone?
In performing your poems and stories, writer, performer and workshop leader, Lytisha Tunbridge is going to guide you through a series of exercises that will improve your stage performances and readings.
Participants will practice techniques for confident delivery of your own readings or poems; whether from the page or memory and Lytisha will show those of you terrified of using microphones how it can be your friend during a performance.
This workshop is perfect for those wishing to build up confidence, attend and perform at more open mic nights or if you’re looking to develop your delivery further.
Lytisha is a writer, performer and workshop leader with an MA in Creative Writing. She has performed her poetry widely, including at: Edinburgh Fringe, Splendour, Nottingham Poetry Festival, Inspire Poetry Festival, and Buxton Festival. International performances include: Speakeasy, Brussels, Poetry Live, Auckland and Inside Out, Ponsonby, NZ. Lytisha is a member of World Jam, Nottingham’s global poetry and music collective, and DIY poets. She produces events as Poetry Aloud at festivals such as: Stuff of Life, Nottingham Poetry Festival, and Exile Festival.
