One Day Writing Workshop: Voicing the Text
One Day Writing Workshop with Visiting Poet Silence Merry Roads
Voicing the Text is an experimental poetry/performance workshop that combines writing, movement, embodied voice and guided visualization to produce short collaborative performance works using the elements of text, voice, and body. Inspired by the work of CA Conrad and La Pocha Nostra, Voicing the Text is an opportunity for poets, singers, theater artists and performance artists to explore the intersections of language and voice in a playful space.
Registration is on a sliding scale of $10-30 per person.
