Event description

Description

This workshop will focus on writing poetry with the goal of translating emotions and events across many contexts and experiences. We will discuss writing as it relates to accessible language and individual experience, self- and world- awareness, and the role of research in writing. We will participate in a few writing exercises, and spend some time at the end to edit if time allows. Please bring writing materials (if you have extra, consider bringing some for your neighbour, as they might not have any). All ages and levels of experience are welcome.


About the Facilitator

Inali Barger is a spoken word artist, educator, community advocate, activist, and has a habit of turning false dichotomies into biodegradable confetti. He has coached individuals and teams of poets to help them breathe into their own truths, locate their own experiences, and edit (self/others/the world, through words). Inali addresses intersectionality through the context of addiction, poverty, homelessness, mental illness, physical illness, queerness, research for advocacy on behalf of himself and others, and his nearly 11 years of dedication to the London Poetry Slam and Canadian spoken word community. They have competed nationally five times, placing 2nd nationally on the London Poetry Slam team in 2016, and was Underground Indies champ in 2017. He has performed, offered workshops, and spoken on panels at international and national conferences, universities, high schools, public schools, libraries, drop-in centres, living rooms and in conversations with strangers.


Accessibility

There is an elevator available to get to the space and there is a gender-neutral, single-stall, wheelchair-accessible washroom on each floor. The maximum number of participants for this workshop is 25.


Guelph Spoken Word does not want cost to be a barrier to your creative growth. Please contact us if you have any accessibility concerns.
