Writing for Performance with Poet Molly Naylor.  Zoom Workshop

This event is part of our Digital Festival which showcases the work of our community and highlights the creativity of people who take part in Theatre Royal activities. Theatre Royal prides itself on being a theatre where there is a space for everyone who has a creative itch to scratch – whether that’s those who are just starting their creative journey or those who have been exploring this for a while. Everyone has a chance to have a go, get involved and take part. This series of events will showcase the work that this creative community and our partners have been producing behind locked doors during this past year. Maybe you will be inspired to join us and be a part of this journey.

This workshop explores performance poetry, spoken word and monologue. Molly will use some of the autobiographical themes that appear throughout her work including her 2020 published book Stop Trying To Be Fantastic. Molly will guide you through the writing and performance process while adding some humour along the way.   Come prepared to write as this workshop will give you the opportunity to explore your writing style and skills to perform it confidently. Suitable for new and experienced writer’s.
