Rick Agran, host of Bon Mot

Learn to appreciate the rhythm and musicality of poetry and spoken word on Monday, April 23, at Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Bon Mot host and radio producer, Rick Agran, will share recorded voices of contemporary poets to explore their sonic qualities. Anyone can come listen. Poets are invited to bring a poem to share that they’d like to develop further. We’ll explore breath, enunciation, and diction to accentuate a poem’s language. We can practice pacing with attention to lines and stanzas. Learn to minimize nervousness and enhance your presentation skills. Remain relaxed and open to poems and share their power with others. Limited to 24 participants.

6:30 pm | Kellogg-Hubbard Library, 135 Main Street

To register for the workshop:  Please contact the library at (802) 223-3338.
