Spoken Word Poetry: A Guide for Educators

Adam Davy and Simon Kindt from Kelvin Grove State College have provided Spoken Word Poetry: A Guide for Educators which is an excellent article on teaching poetry writing to students. You can find it in the Members' Resources on our website.

For the benefit of those members who have not previously visited the members' area, the directions for accessing this area are listed below.

Accessing members' only resources on our website


1. Login as a member using the email address associated with your membership. If you have a personal membership or a student membership, this is easy. If you are covered by corporate membership, it probably will be your HOD's email address, you will need to talk to them.

2. Enter your password. If you never had one or have forgotten it, there is an automatic retrieval process. If this does not work for you, email me at trish.purcell@bigpond.com.au. Once again, talk to your HOD for a corporate membership.

3. When you have logged in to the members' page, you will see three options:
update your details
renew membership
members' resources

4. Select members' resources, then choose Videos and print materials. Note some back copies of Words'Worth are available from the members' Resources page too. These are being added progressively for the last few years.

5. Scroll down the videos and print materials page to find the item you want.

Please note that the presenters of the videos have requested that they are only available to ETAQ members. Please respect their wishes by not sharing on social media.
