Poetry Performance Workshop


Poet and performer Tony Plocido brings you his Poetry Performance Workshop. Each month, a small group gathers in the back room with poems in hand to practice performing in front of each other. This group is meant to help build confidence in reading poetry in front of others and finding the nuances in written word. 

Here are the rules:

This event is FREE. No cost. Nothing. 

This is NOT a writing workshop. This is a PERFORMANCE workshop. We are here to help each other perform better. Here are things to keep in mind when you come (and you should be here!)

1) Bring 1 to 3 pieces to read. You will probably only read one but it's good to have a selection.

2) Bring copies (4 to 6 copies), double spaced, if possible. This helps everyone else take notes on your performance but is not required.

3) BRING PAPER AND PEN. You will be taking notes on the other performers.

4) Lastly, do not bring your fear. This is a safe space. We are here to make you better.

You may bring other people's work. Again, this is a performance workshop, not a writing workshop. We just want you to learn how to perform your poetry, instead of just reading it.
