Have you ever wondered what the difference is between performance poetry and simply reciting a favourite printed poem? Puzzled by what 'slamming' and 'poetry' might have in common? Eager to challenge yourself and try out a new form of poetry? Then our upcoming workshop is for you...

The Geneva Writers’ Group is delighted to present a one-day workshop of spoken word poetry with

Anthony Anaxagorou

Saturday 16 January 2016 10:00-16:30

Geneva Press Club, Route de Ferney 106, Geneva

Find out what performance poetry is all about with one of its most outspoken and passionate advocates!

Anthony Anaxagorou is an award winning poet, prose writer, playwright, performer and educator. He has published eight volumes of poetry, a spoken word EP, a book of short stories and has written for theatre.

His poetry has appeared on various BBC programs over the past decade, while also featuring at the British Urban Film Awards and BBC 6 Music. In 2013 his poem Dialectics was interpreted and performed by Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas.

The workshop will be followed by an Open Mic Poetry Slam at 17:00. For more info and to register, email:

Full day: 35 CHF (25 for AVS/students); morning: 25 CHF (15 for AVS/students).  Evening session is free.

For the Poetry Slam we ask that you prepare to recite one of your poems, one that is most suitable for public performance. It can be done as a solo act or with multiple performers.
