Masterclass with Ian Keteku
Masterclass with Ian Keteku

Your Poem is Lasagna, Layered.
Join 2010 World Poetry Slam champion Ian Keteku as he explores the layers beneath a poem and performance. Many times performance poets unintentionally come across as preachy, ranting, angry.
How do we get our message to be effectively communicated? How do we intentionally dig beneath the layers to find the truth of our story?
Keteku has coached two championship teams and assisted countless others in finding the deeper and layered truth behind the issues and topics poets choose to write about.
Searching for the actual truth, not the truth we hope is true or think should be true helps us communicate better, opens up doors for creativity and in a slam context equates to higher scores.
Participants are asked to bring writing utensils and concepts for poems they hope to write one day. Do not come in with poems you are unwilling to have changed.

This event is all ages.
