ReBels Advanced: Page To Start (ages 18+) with Chris White

Wednesday, January 11


Build your writing style and performance persona with spoken word poet & performer Chris White

Over 5 weeks we’ll look at different themes, explore what drives us to write and work towards a spoken-word sharing in The B-Bar in February, with games, creative writing & some silly exercises. Each week there will be time to write, play, look at other spoken word performers and poets for inspiration, and prepare for your very own performance.

Price: £30 to attend all 5 sessions.

Or sign for for a full ReBels Advanced Membership for £50 which covers everything in the 10 week spring term including all 4 sets of 5 week long advanced sessions (including this one) from January – March plus guest pro workshops, make use of our creative spaces and mentorship scheme.
