In his Writing for Wellness Workshop, Zohab uses creative writing, breath work and elements of basic neuroscience to create an environment that encourages mental wellbeing and self-expression. His accessible delivery style allows students as young as eight to gain an understanding of their personal wellbeing and a sense of self. These workshops are now more important than ever in this time of global insecurity.
Curriculum Relevance: Poetry.
In performance, he prowls and growls and hisses and grins, bends his body like a coat-hanger into various unlikely shapes, and seems to live his poems through his limbs.

Generally when teachers say you have to go to a performance you often expect it to be boring, but this is the best performance I’ve seen.

I strongly recommend he visit your students to share his uplifting and positive art as well as gracious, generous personality. He is a total gem, and of particular inspiration to young listeners who may view poetry in a jaded way.

Zohab was FANTASTIC…the students were enthralled by his performance.

He embodied multiculturalism and used its value as a theme.

Zohab Zee Khan has little in common with the dead white male poets students commonly meet at high school … he delivers his lines with the rhythm and physicality of a rapper.

Thank you for the amazing job you did teaching me and my peers. We are so lucky to have been taught by such a great poet.
Year 9 Student. Xavier High School. Albury. NSW.
I believe his performance was best suited to my age group, as we are all going through changes and are starting to make our own decisions and opinions on the people and world around us. He also taught us his strategies on dealing with bullying and discrimination.

The students and staff TOTALLY enjoyed Zohab!!! Thank you so very much! I've had 6 Year 6 boys come asking for poetry books and reading 'prose' novels - where the whole novel is a poem. Sensational result!

He was fantastic - really strong messages and a good performance. He engaged our students, particularly the boys, in poetry.
