Event description
The Poetry Clinic teaches the basics of creating spoken word poetry through fun exercises designed to unlock your creativity.

About this Event

Nnenna Umelloh started her career as a Spoken Word Poet in London, UK. She has performed in Central London at the Feminist She Grrowls Open Mic. She's also a regular Featured Poet at Raw Lab's Virtual Open Mic Performance. Her first collection of poetry, Speak to the Soul, is now available.

Nnenna the Soul Speaker is hosting a FREE online Poetry Clinic to demystify the process of spoken word poetry and the art of poetry creation. During the workshop, she and participants will cover the basic skills of creating poetry in a fun interactive way. 

Poetry is designed to be expressive and fun. Unfortunately, poetry as an art form can be intimidating and isn't always accessible to people of color. That's why Nnenna is hosting this workshop. 

The workshop will consist of guided three exercises that will help participants unlock their creativity. In addition, Nnenna will be available for a Q&A to learn more about how she broke into the London poetry circuit. 

(This is event starts at 11 am CST and 5 pm GMT)

The agenda is as follows: 

Part 1: Introduction

Part 2: Word Association Exercise

Part 3: Letter Association Exercise 

Part 4: Stream of Consciousness Exercise 

Part 5: Q&A 

You can find Nnenna the Soul Speaker on Instagram @soulspeakerpoet.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
