Spoken Word: Poetry for Young Writers


A free City of Port Adelaide Enfield writing event


In this interactive in-person workshop, writer, poet and performer Matcho Cassidy will guide young participants on a journey to self-discovery using poetry and performance to unlock emotions and find new ways to express themselves both on paper and in-person.

Whether it’s simply working through or finding the tools to communicate more effectively, to be more emotive, or bend your thinking about the 'boundaries' of creativity, this event will be a fun way to kick off the holidays with new skills and a deeper appreciation for performance art.

Participants will:

  • •Make a mind map
  • •Learn about different forms of poetry
  • •Write a complex piece of poetry
  • •Perform a poem
  • •Understanding a deeper sense in self.

Spoken Word Poetry is all about diving into self to be able to take pieces of confusion, hurt or happiness and make or create something to share in a way that transcends into an expressive piece that represents oneself, call it an art word, art work or poetry piece but these collections of words that become work deliver a discipline and confidence into the writer, whether it’s translated into eloquence, precision or articulation, or weaving words conceptually.


This event is aimed at teens and will be best suited for anyone between the ages of 13 and 25
