Show Notes

In episode two of The Poetrygram, actress Alexis Strum offers tips on how to perform your poetry. Learn about warming up your voice, appropriate stage body language and how to settle your nerves when you step into the spotlight.

In the news portion of the show, hostess Helen Cox discusses the recent plagiarism scandal surrounding the Pushcart nominated Ailey O' Toole, and you can listen to the monthly writing prompt to inspire your writing.

If listeners want to pick up a copy of the charitable Light Through the Mist anthology mentioned in the opening update, copies are available here. All of the profits from sales of the book will go to the UK homeless charity Street Link.

If you want to practise the tongue-twister suggested by Alexis in this episode, it's here: She stood upon the balustraded balcony, inexplicably mimicking him hiccuping, whilst amicably welcoming him in.
