I Am…

WordPress I Am

Following Ejike Ndaji’s visit to Norwich Writers’ Circle on 19th January, a video of the poem ‘I Am…’ can now be watched on our YouTube channel.

‘I Am…’ was written by the spoken word poet, in collaboration with NWC members, as an exercise, to help and inspire entries for the latest Circle competition, which Ejike will be adjudicating for us.

To watch the poetry performance please go here.

We next meet on Tuesday 2nd February when local playwright, and NWC member, James Dimelow will be adjudicating our Short Playwriting Competition. Join us at 7.00pm, for a 7.30pm start, at Anteros Arts Foundation. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

The first meeting of 2016 buzzed with enthused chatter as we all caught up with each others’ news. Christmas is a bit of a Marmite time of year. Most either love it or hate it. The 19th had us all reunited and welcoming visitors and new members in our love of words. The festive period had not gone without successes.

James Dimelow has had one his scripts accepted by Fine City Magazine; the EDP has given coverage to Phyllida Scrivens and her recently published book; and Gill Blanchard had news of her own forthcoming book.

And then to the main business…

A big thank you to Ejike Ndaji for an entertaining and very informative evening. Ejike is no stranger to the power of poetry. In his voluntary work for the Red Balloon charity his performances encourage. And as he demonstrated with us, poetry allows subjects such as Martin Luther King to be delivered with a passion less carried in an essay or novel.

For a large number of our members less practiced in the art, the power of Ejike’s “proetry” as he likes to call it (being a rhythmic narrative spoken aloud) was an inspiration. Which is just as well. Ejike has also kindly agreed to adjudicate the in-house Colin Sutton Competition for Humour.

Ejike had taken time to prepare a handout for the evening which included, in addition the history of the spoken word and recommended spoken word artists, tips not only on writing but dealing with nerves when performing.

Details of our next meeting and other forthcoming evenings and events can be found on our programme page. As always we welcome new members and visitors.
