Making a freelance living in the arts is often precarious, inaccessible, fraught with insecurity and fairly unsustainable: so why do it? HOW might ye do it? This masterclass weekend will be a frank and brutally honest exploration of the benefits and pit-falls of trying to forge a career in the literature sector in Scotland.
This masterclass weekend is designed for any spoken word poet who is in the process of creating a full-length spoken word show, or who wants to explore the possibilities of long-form spoken word poetry (20 mins - 60 min show). Whether you have already written your first draft, are at the tentative planning stages, or are someone with a show under their belt but who’d benefit from outside direction, this masterclass is for you.
