This two day workshop is a rare opportunity for spoken word artists, poets and performers to take their work to the next level in the gorgeous 100 seater Netherbow Theatre at the Scottish Storytelling Centre. Over the course of the weekend, participants will explore how to develop a long form poetry/spoken word show; how to make the most of professional theatre spaces, including developing stagecraft; creating lighting cues and working with a theatre technician; practical advice on how to pitch a show to venues and promoters; suggestions for seeking funding; and how to develop tour and marketing plans.
The weekend will culminate with an hour long performance on the Sunday evening.
There are 12 spaces available for participants, and the cost of the course is £95.
