Write it So they Feel It – A Poetry and Performance Workshop When you write or take to the stage, what are you passing on—information or emotion? “_Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader. Not the fact that it is raining but the feeling of being rained on_” (EL Doctorow) Through written and physical exercises, we will explore how to write so that people remember and how to put power into your performance so that you can own any stage.   Please note, this workshop is free but but you do need to secure your place by booking below. By booking, you confirm that you are a young writer aged 13-25, and based in Scotland. For enquiries, contact
