How To Play A Poem Like A Song - New Writing Series in partnership with Tongue Fu

06 January 2023

ArtulScribe presents a new writing series, 'How to Play a
Poem like a Song' in partnership with Tongue Fu.

Have you ever wanted to put your poems to music, but not
sure where to start? Or maybe you already write to music, but would like to
further explore the relationship between the two? Or maybe you've never even
considered it but like a challenge?

This is a fun, creative, supportive online series of
workshops which aim to get all participants comfortable with writing and
performing with music, not as backing track, but as another voice, a
collaborator. Featuring musical and writing prompts plus listening and performing
exercises led by poet, musician and Tongue Fu founder, Chris Redmond.

Tongue Fu is the UK's leading spoken word, music and
improvisation show, touring from Glastonbury to the Southbank, Dublin to Rio to
Capetown, collaborating with a huge range of artists like Kae Tempest, Akala,
Irvine Welsh and Hollie McNish.

The course is open to anyone but particularly welcomes
poets/writers in the Solent region. We are looking for a commitment to the
series of sessions, as opposed to one-off attendance. Throughout the course
duration there will be a series of Tongue Fu shows, which participants will
have opportunity to attend and perform.
