An open poetry workshop with Claire Askew, poet, Editor in Chief of Read This Magazine, Lecturer in Literature and Communications at Edinburgh’s Telford College and Tutor in Creative Writing at the University of Edinburgh.

POETRY FOR THE STAGE: WRITING OUT LOUD
Friday 18th Feb

Stick around after Claire’s page workshop and find out how to adapt one of your poems for the stage. Alternatively, come along fresh and learn all about the finer points of performance. Hosted by Harry Giles, writer, theatre director, founder and co-ordinator of Inky Fingers and multiple-award-winning slam poet. All welcome, no experience necessary — just bring yourself, and a poem!

Feedback: Really useful, insightful and thorough workshop to getting over those stage fright blues. Open, funny and exhaustive guide to gaining confidence through listening to our bodies and giving voice to words on a page.

Events are free but donations are very welcome.

All events take place at: The Art Room, Tollcross Community Centre (next to Tollcross Primary School), Fountainbridge

WANT TO RUN YOUR OWN EVENT?
We want to hear from anyone who wants to run their own workshop, host a meeting, screen films, exhibit art, put on a play, dance, sculpt or do anything else creative in our space. No proposal is too big, too small, or too strange. For more details visit http://bit.ly/dXqlS7 or email film_at_thiscollection.org

We hope to see some of you there!
