Spoken word workshop with STXTAN

Tue 11 July, 2023
Have you ever wanted to just stand up and give it a go? Do you have a topic you are passionate about or just feel like letting something out?

Come and join us to learn more about spoken word, poetry and open mic events at our Derby CAN workshop where you can learn more about putting your voice into action!

Maybe this is your first time in writing or maybe you have many ideas but just never found the opportunity to perform?

In this workshop with STXTAN you will get the chance to discover these skills and then be part of organising your own spoken word event with Derby CAN for the future.

There will also be some slots available to perform that evening as part of the Real Talk poetry night happening after the workshop.
