Spoken Word Poetry with Lorin Elizabeth: THE BIG DAY IN
Sydney Distance Education High School's Open Day
Spoken word poet Lorin Elizabeth will be facilitating two workshops at Sydney Distance Education High School's Open day.
Have you ever marveled at a clever pun or memorised a rap verse? Have you ever clicked your fingers at a poetry slam, or wondered what in the world that even means? Have you ever wanted to tell your own story in the realest way possible? Then come along to this performance and workshop with spoken word poet Lorin Elizabeth, where you’ll learn poetry and performance skills before you take the stage and share your words.
Lorin Elizabeth is a spoken word poet, organiser and teaching artist from Wollongong, who co-founded Enough Said Poetry Slam and is published in Going Down Swinging’s audio anthology.
She has toured the USA poetry slam circuit, featured at the Women of the World Poetry Slam in Albuquerque, NM and self-published an EP called Poems.
In 2017, Lorin featured at Canberra’s Noted Festival, hosted The Rumble Youth Slam at Sydney Writers’ Festival and was a workshop facilitator and panelist for The Stella Prize’s Girls Write Up program in Canberra, Sydney and Wodonga.
