Every month, our regular themed night is accompanied by a workshop to create new poems on the theme. The workshops are a relaxed but focused two hour long session with a break in the middle. We will freewrite, work from specially written poetry exercises, look at existing work on the theme, and share our new writing with each other.
Our workshop is usually one or two weeks before our monthly spoken word night. If you create something at the workshop you’re proud of, you’re welcome to sign up on the open mic to perform!
The workshop venues vary month by month, so check our Facebook page or the calendar of events for up-to-date details. Our workshops are free to attend, but we suggest a small donation of £1 – £2 to cover printing, venue, and facilitation costs.
