Session Details

My ideal session would be on POETRY and be two hours long. Beginning with a talk/show on the power and importance of one’s own voice, then breaking up to write our own work before finishing with a poetry slam at the end. If less than fifteen the group should be arranged around one large table. If more than fifteen an audience set up is preferred. I can also provide once off workshops on, or can do a residency covering, Rap, Poetry, Screenwriting, Prose.

Age Group Details
