The Power of Performance
Aris Kian

As poetry becomes more accessible through video and audio platforms, how can we craft our words so they extend past the page? Using newly generated work or our oldies but goodies, we will explore how to enhance our own writing through choreography, persona, vocal intonation, and emotional expression.
