Versify is a six  session writing & performance project for young people 16-25 in Plymouth. They will be looking at styles of performance poetry, stand up poetry, rap, spoken word with music, and performance art. You will have opportunity to write new material, practice & develop it, then take it to the stage at the Versify Show in the final week!

Who can take part?

Anyone 16-25 is welcome to book onto the course. If you have questions, drop Marion a line using the contact form on this site and she will contact you. You do not need lots of  experience – just an interest in writing and performing, and an openness to try out new things.

The project will be led by writer & performer, Marion Clare along with visiting artists and regular volunteers.
