Workshop/ Re:Discovering your voice

Your voice is as unique to you as your face, or your fingerprints. So why waste your time trying to sound like anybody else?

Explore the connection between your writing and your speaking (perhaps even your singing) voice in this three-hour workshop from award-winning writer/performer and host of Pen:Chant, Ben Mellor. Using a range of writing, vocal and physical exercises, you’ll spend time identifying the individual brilliance of your voice – your use of language, dialect, accent, tone, timbre, rhythm and style.

Bring a piece to work on and/or compose something during the session – not on the page, as Ferlinghetti said, but on the tongue.

Suitable for those finding their voice for the first time, and equally for those who feel they’ve misplaced theirs and need a rummage down the back of the sofa.
