Performing your own poetry, prose or stand-up
material can be a dream or a nightmare -
why not make it a pleasure for yourself and your
audiences by taking time out to work with
professionals who can guide you towards developing
your skills and confidence?
As part of its 2016 programme Spotlight is
organising a series of workshops designed
to help you do just that.

Feedback on Previous Workshops:

Thank you  for the performance workshop.  I found it really valuable in
preparing for my Spotlight spot! - 
Will you be holding further workshops?  Since attending the first one I have modified and revisited the poetry I brought along and shared.  I found the first session really useful and would like a further session looking at rewriting and revising poetry and then where to go next with it if possbile.
Just a note to say thank you to you for giving us the opportunity to perform at Spotlight.
Both that and your workshop gave a great boost to our confidence and, as I said, we now have a booking for the Ilkley Literature Festival in October for a one hour performance. None of that would have been possible without your support and encouragement.
