“What we love to wear and the objects we treasure express not only who are, but who we want to be.”

You are invited to take part in a unique Style & Spoken Word workshop. Do you have a favourite item of clothing or object you love? A hat, a key ring or book – bring them along! Let them speak for you.

We will use drama and performance techniques, creative writing and poetry, movement and breath, the odd dance step and most of all your imagination and unique style. You have the opportunity to showcase your creative work to an audience. Let’s play!

Akila is a published writer, poet and passionate spoken word artist, working in a variety of settings. She is an accredited coach and works professionally in the arts, cultural and community sector.

This event is part of Essex Book Festival’s PLACE WEEKEND in Colchester on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 March.
