From Page to Stage 101, Tuesday 3/20/12, 1-2pm Room D523

Our next special event is a wonderful workshop called "Page to Stage 101," featuring Taylor Mali and Marie-Elizabeth Mali.

The skills involved in writing a good poem are not identical to the skills required to perform a poem well, and the world is split between people who would rather hear a terrible performance of a brilliant poem and those who would rather hear a brilliant performance. Period. So let's say you've written a brilliant poem. Now what? Four-time National Poetry Slam Champion Taylor Mali, and Marie-Elizabeth Mali, co-producer of the Page Meets Stage reading series at the Bowery Poetry Club, have some tips, tricks, and techniques that will help you make your poems go in one ear of your audience. . . and stay there.
