Project Type: Publication
Genre: Poetry/Stage script
Title: Genre Fluid
Author: Dan Webber
Cover Design: Brett Maskill-Watts
Dan was awarded a grant from The ERDF Big House project in Derby to fund production of this book. We worked together to find the best format to showcase the way in which Dan's show incorporates monologue, poetry and a Power Point presentation! We came up with a script version of his show, with illustrations of the slides alongside the poems and text.
To produce a Kindle version of the book we used the services of Alison Mott who offers a straightforward service to anyone who does not want to navigate the process themselves.
Having produced two spoken word shows to date, Genre Fluid is the culmination of three years of writing, touring and performing at various events and festivals across the country. Being constantly told you are a comic at poetry nights and a poet at comedy nights can be very confusing, as is the constant pressure to define yourself and your work. Genre Fluid is a study into labels in everyday life, in the arts and the LGBT+ community.
