Poetic Forms – A Poetry Workshop with Juliette Blake Jacob

May 11, 2021

May 11, 2021

Free; Pre-register



Events Description

In this workshop, learn about focused and creative ways to arrange and shape your poetry, with a special focus on experimenting with centos, list poems, pantoums, and epigrams. Learn how these poetic forms can help you generate new ideas and tell your story with more power on the page and on the stage. Please bring something to write with and have a few poetry books handy or open some tabs with poems you like: we will use them in an activity. This is a consent-based workshop, meaning that you can engage on whatever level is best for you: there is no sharing or speaking requirement.
Facilitator bio:
Juliette Blake Jacob (she/her) is an invisibly-disabled, queer femme, multi-award-winning spoken-word poet and creative writing educator living on the West Coast as a white settler on unceded W̱SÁNEĆ and Lekwungen land.
Juliette has appeared in almost 100 national and international performances, been welcomed as an artist-in-residence and ensemble member of many beautiful collectives, and mentors writing and performance students across the country. She is the Director and lead instructor of the Fireworks Mentorship Program for spoken-word artists, which entered its inaugural season in September 2020.
This workshop is presented by Regina Word Up, a spoken-word program and community based out of the Creative City Centre in Treaty 4.
