6. Personal Poetry
Teenswrite! Master Class
9:30 - 10:45am.
Kingston performance poet Alyssa Cooper offers this learn-by-doing performance poetry workshop. Learn how to use descriptive tools like metaphor and symbolism, and then try out performance techniques like alliteration, syncopation, rhythm, and feel how the act of performing can change the written aspect of a piece. Alyssa walks you through writing your own allegorical piece, choosing an object to represent a person, and as a framing device for what you want to say to that person. Compose and perform. Feel powerful. Limited enrolment.
