Poetry SLAM Workshop

Sign up today for performance poetry workshops with Marc Kelly Smith at the Mount Carroll District Library!

Starting Tuesday, January 31, 2017
6:30 to 9 pm for 4 sessions at the Mount Carroll Library
208 N. Main

Marc Smith’s performance poetry workshop introduces students to the fundamentals of performing poetry professionally and effectively on stage in a public forum. By the end of the workshop, the shyest, most inexperienced student will have the confidence to read or recite poetry on stage to peers and strangers alike. Through writing exercises (some playful, some more introspective) students will begin to understand the close relationship between text and performance, and experience the joy of writing and performing can bring.

Participants from high school age and above are encouraged to sign-up today. There is no charge for the workshops. Space is limited.

To register please call the Library at 815-244-1751
