The Austrian Poetry Slam-national champion of 2017, Agnes Maier, will show the participants of this workshop how to create their own texts and make them flow. Together, we will try a poetic, sensitive and pointed use of language. Events from our own life as well as other topics that are close to our heart will turn into moving and humorous texts. Next to conscious phrasing, staging oneself as a performer and planning an expressive performance will be in the center of this workshop.
Agnes Maier (*1993 Graz, lives in Graz) works as a midwife. Since 2015 she appears on international and national poetry-slam-stages with her own texts. By now she is a fixture of the Austrian slam-scene. In 2017, she was champion of the provinces Styria and Carinthia and Austrian national champion in the single-competition.
