Creating and Performing Poetry


Creating and Performing Poetry


Encouraging people to develop their poetic voice with a view to public performance


We begin with some basic forms and techniques employed in creating poetry for performance, and then experiment with performance avatars who might best communicate your ideas and story.

Why this is important?

Performance poetry is a very accessible art-form. It has become extremely popular and there are now many excellent opportunities to perform and have your ideas heard in public.

Key descriptors:

Poetry writing, Performance and projection

Suggested age range:

Year 10-13
