If you are a poet and would like some one-on-one help from Live Canon with performing your poetry (including voice, breath, preparing poems for performance, combatting nerves, microphone technique) then get in touch to find out more and book a session. 


from partipants on Live Canon's 'Performing Your Poetry' course:

‘a stimulating and interesting day… it helped that it was a small group’

‘it was great to get to spend a day learning with some very impressive poets and theatrical professionals’

‘I felt I’d improved over the day. Of course that’s mainly an illusion, but I do feel that I now have the tools to improve and that I know what to do to start to get better and more confident.’

‘I thought it was incredibly good value… I felt that I got a lot of stuff packed in to my day’s worth of hours, and at a very reasonable cost.’

‘it was pretty much bang-on’

‘it was a perfect balance of instruction, interaction and practice’

‘I had a brilliant time and learned loads, thank you!’

‘A really helpful day’

‘if it had stopped at lunchtime, I would already have learnt an awful lot’
