The Verbalization of Poetry
LitSpace Literary Arts Institute at Morean Arts Center
Saint Petersburg, FL
Share this event:

The object of this class is to learn how to read your poetry written for the page, as well as other poets you like to read. Learn about inflection, where to break, take a breath, and emphasize the words, lines, and stanzas. You will also learn how to read poetry written for the stage (Spoken Word). I will provide a brief discussion on the similarities and differences between the two, and discuss whether they translate from one medium to the other. Please bring a book of poetry you enjoy, a notebook and a pen/pencil.
