Spoken Word Workshop with Wakefield

Spoken Word Workshop with Wakefield Brewster

Saturday, February 1, 2014

1:00-2:30 pm

Loft 112 (112, 535 8 Ave. SE)


Learn from one of the best spoken word poets residing in Calgary! Wakefield Brewster is top notch. It's going to be amazing! 

The first half of the workshop will have a focus on the creative writing aspect with examples that Wakefield actually employs when he writes, from the conventional to the unconventional to the crazy.
The second half of the workshop will be dedicated to the performance aspects. Wakefield will talk about the use of space, body language, vocal projection, breathing, all kinds of little things, because the little things count.
This will be a highly interactive workshop with lots of Question and Answer opportunity. It is not the typical “someone lectures at you for ‘x’ number of minutes, now write a poem” workshop. Writing a poem is not going to be mandatory. Taking notes is optional. So come have some fun!

"I’m high energy - I’m honest - I’m passionate - I’m real. I want them to feel that vibe emanate off of me and have it permeate them right to their poet-souls." - Wakefield Brewster

Beverages and snacks will be provided.

Cost: $25 cash
Capacity: 25 people
