There Are People Out There: Reading Your Work to an Audience
It’ll happen to you, if it hasn’t already, or it’s happened dozens of times: It’s reading your work to an audience. It’s not performance poetry. It’s you, serving the poems you’ve labored hard to create: How do you serve your poem? How do you serve your audience?
Over the 4 weeks of this workshop, we’ll read your poems aloud, as well as the work of others. We’ll listen, define the word “serve”, discuss and offer helpful responses. Together, the class will consider your responses to an audience and suggest tools to offer the gift you want us to receive: Your poem.
In-Person | 4 Saturdays | Jan 6 – Jan 27 | 12-2pm ET | $200 ($180 for Members)
Workshop meetings will be in Kray Hall at Poets House | 10 River Terrace, New York, NY 10282
All are welcome, space is limited. A limited number of partial need-based scholarships are available. Please email email@example.com with any questions.
