Performance for Queer Poets

Pride month may be over for another year but we aren’t done yet. If you are an LGBTQ+ poet based in London, that would like to spend some time with other LGBTQ+ poets based in London, working on perfecting your performance skills for that one poem about your experiences as an LGBTQ+ person (based in London, maybe?), then this is the workshop for you.

Led by Nick Field, WorldPride Poet in Residence, this workshop will provide you with some tips, tricks and hacks for all of your performance needs. 

Bring along a poem that you would like to work with to explore developing your performance skills and ideas further. 

This session will be in person at The Albany in the Apples and Snakes Offices

  • The event will start at 2:00pm, we will open the room at 1:50pm.
  • This workshop is for, you guessed it, LGBTQ+ poets based in London.
  • This workshop is free
  • It is limited to a capacity of 12 and will be available on a first come, first serve basis. 

If you book a place and can’t use it, please pass it on to someone else or let us know so that we can pass it on to someone else.
