The page is a cold bed. Poetry has to live in the air, and every poet who is compelled to publish their work or sell books will be asked at some point to read their compositions in a public forum.
An experienced performer, Flynn will focus on exercises that draw out the rhythm in your performance while illustrating the many bedrock techniques of public speaking, and the particular challenges of interpreting the sometimes complex ideas of a poem.
Participants will learn how to find and confidently project the hidden singer inside from Poet-Musician Keith Flynn, one of the country’s finest performers of their work.
Flynn reveals that, “We will create the proper dynamic theater for a poetry reading, from the page to the stage and unlock the drama and music that are the integral aspects of a memorable performance.”
The cost of the workshop is $20 Each participant should bring two pieces to share with the group and at least 20 copies of each. Any work deemed exemplary will be considered for publication in The Asheville Poetry Review. This workshop is designed to benefit the beginner as well as the accomplished poet and to arm poets with bags of tricks to charm every crowd they encounter.
