How can you write poetry that performs well, and how can you bring the page to life on the stage? For folk looking to bring performance into their poetry or poetry into their performance, this session with multi-slam winner and Forward-shortlisted poet Harry Josephine Giles will be an in-depth look on what makes words and voice work together.
Participants will learn poetry performance skills and explore writing poetic text that performs well.
Harry Josephine Giles is from Orkney and lives in Edinburgh. Their latest publication is The Games from Out-Spoken Press, shortlisted for the 2016 Edwin Morgan Poetry Award. They are studying for a PhD at Stirling, co-direct the performance producer Anatomy, and have toured theatre across Europe and Leith. www.harrygiles.org
