Stepping Outside Ourselves: the Persona Spoken Word Poem Performance & Workshop
with Lucia Misch & Johnny MacRae
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2015
NEWTON CULTURAL CENTRE
13530 72nd AVENUE
9:30 AM TO 1:00 PM
“Stepping Outside Ourselves” is a spoken word poetry workshop focused on writing in one of the most popular spoken word forms, persona poems. Facilitators Lucia Misch and Johnny MacRae will guide participants through exercises that emphasize both performance and writing. Beginning with a general overview of spoken word and a performance of their own work in the persona genre, Lucia and Johnny will focus on a variety of areas related to persona poetry and poetry more generally, including principles such as active language and writing for the senses, poetic devices such as personification and metaphorical conceit, or skills such as character performance.
For further information, here is the Persona Poetry Event poster.
