Nov Workshop: Writing Trauma with Shelly Campbell

Event Date: November 18, 2017 -

Event Time: 12-2pm

Event Location: 240 Waterloo St London ON

Join us the Saturday after our slam from 12-2pm for a workshop opportunity to chat with poets, learn some tips and tricks, have your writing critiqued, practice performing, or just sit in and listen! Workshops are held at the GORGEOUS London Roundhouse, and are FREE + ALL welcome! (no experience necessary)

Our November workshop will be facilitated by Shelly Campbell, a performer at Toronto Poetry Slam and Roots Lounge, and international slam competitor. “More and more we see trauma poems, and while poems are a form of self-expression and healing, poets often try to “out trauma” each other for slam scores and forget about the effect on the audience. Your poem is your story and your burden, discovering how to share it without putting the burden on others is a responsibility. A poem shouldn’t just be pain; where is the strength, the resilience, even just in the delivery.”
