For the first time in Cebu, Cebu Literary Festival is proud to offer a spoken word workshop led by Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye on May 9, one day before their show on May 10. This intimate, hands-on workshop provides an opportunity for participants to build the skills and confidence to create and perform their own poetry.
Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye lead CebuLitFest spoken word workshop
Employing original curriculum honed in workshop settings around the world, Sarah and Phil work with participants to navigate the roadblocks of the creative process, building healthy habits to consistently create and share personal work. Appropriate for new and experienced poets alike, the workshop offers a supportive and safe environment where participants can experiment, practice, and polish their work.
The workshop encourages people to engage with the world around them and use spoken word poetry as an instrument through which they can explore and better understand their community, their society, and ultimately themselves. Participants will also be given an opportunity to perform in CebuLitFest Open Mic sessions programmed throughout the year in various venues in Cebu.
