Workshop: “Writing for Performance”

Writing for performance can be a very different experience from writing for the page. In this workshop we’ll look at some of those differences, and how to make the most out of what can be a daunting prospect if you’re not used to it.

This workshop combines quick writing exercises, discussions, and performance/ public speaking techniques, to help you build up your bespoke toolkit for combining words and speech. Prepare to write something new, and lean into the things you find a bit embarrassing to develop what you need!

Let Fay Roberts, veteran of spoken word solo shows, open mics, slams, and festival stages (both running them and performing in all of them) guide you in taking your next (or first!) steps into this age-old form.

Please get in touch if you would like to book this workshop for your group.
