Nathan Curnow – Spoken Word

Melbourne Spoken Word is hosting another special workshop, this time with Nathan Curnow.

Join Nathan Curnow as he introduces you to some of the spoken word tracks that first inspired him. We’ll undertake a number of exercises aimed at developing our delivery on the stage and page, focussing on shorter pieces as well as longer narrative works. We’ll explore what it means to get out of the way of our own performance, considering ‘Slam voice’ and extended storytelling. Kanye said… ‘start with the truth, then put some dope shit with it’, so let’s do that in a relaxed session with plenty of time for questions. (Note: we will not spend any time trying to understand what Kanye meant by that).

Nathan Curnow is an award-winning poet, performer and past editor of Going Down Swinging. His previous books include The Ghost Poetry Project, RADAR, and The Right Wrong Notes. His most recent collection The Apocalypse Awards (2016) is inspired by the absurdity of the modern world and charts our collective obsession with the end times. A recipient of the Josephine Ulrick Poetry Prize, he teaches creative writing at Federation University, and is a co-host of the Youtube series Cooking Classic Poems.
