Poetry Tours/Public Speaking

Anna has been on poetry tours in China, USA and Canada. She brings poetry with music/computer arts to the public. To book her readings please check her events list and contact her.

Poetry Alive: Poetry Workshopwith Computer Arts

Poetry Alive is designed to be fun, educational and appropriate for all ages. For each session, Anna selects various interesting poems that reflect daily life and connect to Nature. Through introducing different types of poetry (haiku, concrete poems, free verse, sonnets, found poetry etc), Anna displays how words, thoughts and images may be connected and developed. By combining computer arts and live audience participation, Anna demonstrates how a simple scene can generate a profound poem. This enlightening program explores the world of imagination and creates a joyful experience in words. Each time Anna adjusts her program to fit the needs of different audiences with various writing exercises.
