A Change of Tempo Performance Poetry Workshop

We came across this event in Facebook and wanted to post it on the website for our members and visitors to the site for a chance to be able to participate in a Performance Poetry Workshop organized by Tempo Magazine

This workshop will be facilitated by Dorian “Paul D” Rogers, award-winning poet from the USA who:

  • Winner of 2007 National Poetry Slams in Austin, Texas

  • Performed on stage with Amiri Baraka, Nikki Giovanni and Stevie Wonder

How the workshop will be run: 

Each poet will receive individualized assistance focusing on the performance aspect of spoken word poetry (voice inflection, volume, speed, articulation and memorization)


Each poet will be required to bring an original poem with them for the workshop.
