Description

Join us for a spoken word and poetry workshop with the fabulous Dean Atta. All ages and writing levels welcome. This is a free event for all, not just Portsmouth Writers' Hub members and New Writing South Friends. Tickets are free for all, but please download your ticket.

Bring your work in progress and any questions you might have for tips and guidance on improving your writing and getting your voice out there. Dean will set a few exercises to help you develop your poetry and share tips on delivering them in your unique voice. A published poet and spoken word artist, Dean Atta has been commissioned to write poems for BBC Radio 4, BBC World Service, Dazed & Confused, Keats House Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain and Tate Modern. This is your chance to hear some fabulous spoken word while developing your skills and getting all your questions answered on this growing artform.
