It was in Birgunj that Larisa conducted a basic three-day spoken word poetry workshop earlier in 2017, under the Write to Speak campaign. She went to Birgunj again to attend a performance event, ‘Spoken Word Poetry Live: Birgunj’ featuring 20 participants who were selected for intensive writing and performing workshops. Here, she writes about her recent trip to Birgunj.

धरानको थुप्रै स्कुल कलेज पुग्दाका थुप्रै सम्झना , साच्चै सम्झनामा लाग्छ रमाइलो भने झैँ रमाइलो लाग्दा छन्। चाहे धरानको एउटा स्कुलमा पढ्ने भाईले धराने लबजमा-
“अन्त्के दाजुको कविता चै over मन पर्यो है”
भनेको क्षण होस् या सारदा बालिका स्कुलमा पढ्ने बहिनीले beat box सुनाको पल होस् वा गर्मीमा पसलको तल आइसक्रिम खादै गर्दा त्यहि घरको माथिल्लो तला बाट एक किशोर हामीलाई देखेर “राइट टु स्पीक” भन्दै कराएको पल; सम्झिदै मनमा अनौठो हलचल महसुश हुन्छ ।


For the First Time

In the past three days, I have learned so much more. I realized how much I enjoy working with kids, playing with them and interacting with them. I realized that if you muster up enough courage to shake off the dust of fear and nervousness from your shoulders, and take one small leap anything is possible. This also includes conducting a spoken word poetry workshop all by yourself for the first time.
