Lives: charmed as in surviving, as in getting away with it, as in possessed,

as in fortunate. The lives and moments in these poems are about being

vulnerable, getting by and sometimes being at one with the world. This

visually evocative and grounded writing is able to cross and recross the

divide between the familiar and the strange.
Available since: 10/29/2014.
Print length: 102 pages.

    Poetry is often cited as our greatest use of words.  The English language has well over a million of them and poets down the ages seem, at times, to make use of every single one.  But often they use them in simple ways to describe anything and everything from landscapes to all aspects of the human condition.  Poems can evoke within us an individual response that takes us by surprise; that opens our ears and eyes to very personal feelings. 
    Forget the idea of classic poetry being somehow dull and boring and best kept to children’s textbooks. It still has life, vibrancy and relevance to our lives today.  
    Where to start? How to do that? Poetry can be difficult. We’ve put together some very eclectic Poetry Hours, with a broad range of poets and themes, to entice you and seduce you with all manner of temptations.   
    In this hour we introduce poets of the quality and breadth of John Dryden and William Morris as well as themes on Victorian Poetry, August, The Female Poet and more. 
    All of them are from Portable Poetry, a dedicated poetry publisher. We believe that poetry should be a part of our everyday lives, uplifting the soul & reaching the parts that other arts can’t.  Our range of audiobooks and ebooks cover volumes on some of our greatest poets to anthologies of seasons, months, places and a wide range of themes.  Portable Poetry can found at iTunes, Audible, the digital music section on Amazon and most other digital stores.  
    This audio book is also duplicated in print as an ebook. Same title. Same words. Perhaps a different experience. But with Amazon’s whispersync you can pick up and put down on any device – start on audio, continue in print and any which way after that.   
    Portable poetry – Let us join you for the journey.

    This comprehensive, easy-to-use guide contains everything you need to plan and deliver effective drama sessions, get the best out of your participants, and develop an empowering leadership style that works for you.
    Drawing on over fifteen years' experience of running workshops – including for the National Theatre, The Old Vic, Barbican, Battersea Arts Centre and National Youth Theatre – Linden Walcott-Burton takes you through everything you need to know, with essential advice on:
    - Your Workshop: How to plan and structure a successful session; how to deliver it effectively, whether in-person or online; how to devise and run an entire course.
    - Your Group: How to motivate and get the best out of your group; how to encourage positive behaviours and manage challenging ones; how to adapt to different groups and needs; how to give and receive feedback.
    - Yourself as a Workshop Leader: How to empower yourself by owning the space and maintaining boundaries; how to use your voice (and not lose it); how to harness the power of humour and fun.
    Packed with tips and techniques that work with any setting and age group, whether you're running a short session or a longer course, the book also provides specific guidance on delivering workshops in schools, working with disabled people and those with learning disabilities, and safeguarding when working with children and young people. There's also advice on co-facilitating, working with assistants and finding work.
    Organised in handy, bite-sized chunks allowing you to find just what you need, the book also includes sample workshop plans and content, with additional insights and examples of best practice from many other leading practitioners in the field.
    Whether you're just starting out and want to learn the basics, or you're a seasoned facilitator looking for fresh ideas, The Drama Workshop Leader is the resource you need to deliver a great session in any room you walk into, no matter what's thrown your way.
    'Every practitioner, no matter their level of experience, will gain so much from this book' Jackie Tait, Primary Programme Manager, National Theatre Learning
