Book and Kitchen runs poetry clinic

In need of a bit of literary rehab this summer? Pop along to Book and Kitchen on the 2nd August to its very own Poetry Clinic. This two hour workshop, led by Irit Sela, will consist of a group of eight to 12 people exploring  how to realise the poetic voice in oral reading. The Clinic will offer a systematic reading method that lets the text itself reveal how it works, how it can come to life, bringing us face to face with the true meaning of each word and how those words fit the ‘score’ of the piece. This innovative method is useful to poets and writers, as well as to actors and musicians for performance. Bring all your energy and expect to come away exhausted but with many new ways of reading and enjoying the written word. Tickets are still on sale at Book and Kitchen and on their website: bookandkitchen
