Myriam San Marco
How do you stop your knees knocking and your paper wobbling when you perform? How can you make sure they can hear you in the cheap seats? Bournemouth Poet Laureate Myriam San Marco will seek to answers these questions and more in a practical performance skills workshop for writers and performers at all levels of experience. Developing performance skills and presentation ability is a great way to tackle one of the most challenging aspects of being a writer who performs their work. Performing is the most direct way for a poet to communicate, develop a profile and share their work and unique voice.
The workshop will focus on finding the confidence and presence to present a strong set as part of a spoken word or poetry event and look at the key aspects of developing and putting together a good performance and showcasing work, working with participants to help them develop their skills. The workshop involves practical work, games and theatre skills to help participants focus on their presentation style and what makes it unique, and techniques for delivering a set successfully, and that all important constructive feedback.
