Have you always wanted to learn how to write poetry? Have you been writing for ages and would love the chance to get some tips and tricks? Whatever your background and experience, everyone is welcome at this inclusive workshop, from newbies to the poetry obsessed.
The session will introduce you to some fun activities to get you scribbling ideas about what home means to you. We will play with words, sounds and images until we find the poems that need to be written, spoken, shouted at the top of our voices. This workshop is for anyone who has something to say, even if you don't know what it is yet.
Come join in some games, meet some like-minded people and explore poetry in ways they don't teach you in school.
Suitable for children 8-12 years old with their caregivers.
We recommend arriving 15 minutes before the start of this event. Late arrivals may be admitted on a case-by-case basis.
