Positive Poetry worked with St. Peter's School. This is the short film created to premier at Transmission Fest 2019 following a Page2Performance workshop.


This is an exciting opportunity for students to learn how to write a poem from scratch and transform it into a performance piece. Janey McLeod-White guides the students through a series of ice- breakers, confidence building exercises, creative writing tools and performance techniques culminating in a piece ready to perform at a gig, show or short film. 

This workshop can be tailored to specific themes, groups sizes and ages. Page2Performance can be tailored to run as a 2 hour, half day or full day workshop or alternatively as a series.

In this workshop students will learn how to:

  • Build confidence

  • Write a brand new poem from scratch 

  • Bring their poem to life

  • Use vocal warm ups

  • Memorise text quickly

  • Use stage nerves positively

  • Perform their poem
