Putting the live in their delivery, these scribes take their words to the world via powerful performances. Storytelling, poetry slams and stagecraft all require a special physical presence. Get ready to put your whole self in to a discussion of mind, body and projecting far beyond the page.

Menempatkan hidup dalam pembawaan mereka, Penulis-penulis ini membawa kata-kata mereka ke dunia melalui pertunjukan yang kuat. Mendongeng, puisi slam, dan pertunjukkan di panggung, semuanya membutuhkan ketampilan fisik khusus. Bersiaplah untuk menempatkan seluruh diri Anda ke dalam diskusi tentang pikiran, tubuh, dan memproyeksikan hal yang jauh melampaui lembaran.
