Last weeks Youth Poetry Spoken Word Workshop was great. We went more in detail about memorization.
Memorization normally means, “committing something to heart.”
In the spoken word world however, it means becoming familiar with your piece to the point it seems more natural and fluid…even if you’re reading from paper or your phone.
It means…getting comfortable with your work to the point where you can share it.
Yesterdays workshop was more difficult because not only was everyone asked to write on the spot…they also were asked to memorize and perform. 😮
They did an awesome job!!! 🙂
I am soo proud of them y’all!
Words can’t express!
I told them, “always remember, the quicker you can write and memorize, the stronger your writing and performance ability will become!”
