Spoken Word Workshop

Write a Poem With Me - limited to 12 places.

Jonathan Mason, your workshop host, will encourage you to develop your writing and performing style with a series of exercises designed to inspire self-expression and introduce structure and form to your poetic expression.

Jonathan Mason has been a Drama and English teacher, actor, poet, performer and wordsmith for nearly 30 years.  Since the pandemic, like so many of us, Jonathan has been approaching his art and performance work with a fresh sense of gusto and enthusiasm, participating in open-mic and pop-up poetry performances around Devon.  He has participated in many, judged some and even won at the numerous local poetry slam nights that are flourishing here in the South West.  His performance poetry is informed by his acting experience, but rooted in his love of language and lust for life; it can be whimsical, political, personal and profound, but it is always positive and powerful.

Jonathan looks forward to sharing his knowledge and experience with you so that you can start your journey to being a stand-out, stand-up poet.

Join us after the workshop at the open mic where, if you wish to, you can perform your work to a live audience.
