People don’t often remember what we say, they mostly remember how we made them feel. How do we maximize the dialogue(s) we have with our audiences? 

Poetry / Spoken Word performances are one of the most powerful forms of communication. There is space between us and our audience that is sacred and bursting with possibility. Our time on stage is full of the pure potential to impact someone or simply share a moment, a laugh, a thought, an idea and/or more. In this workshop we will focus on the psychology of performance, the preparation before each performance and the mindset to embody the character behind our words. We will explore the rhyme and reason of why we pour on page and how to leave fire ablaze on every single stage we grace.

Vancouver Poetry House events take place on the ancestral territories of the Xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh First Nations, whose lands were never sold, ceded, or relinquished,—lands that were taken. Vancouver Poetry House supports the resurgence of Indigenous culture and the work of Indigenous poets.
