This workshop is open to young writers under the age of 30 and is aimed at giving people who are new to poetry more confidence to speak out. We’ll look at getting started (and facing the blank page), sharing and performing poems. There will be creative writing prompts and advice on reading your work to an audience. No previous experience of writing poetry is necessary!
