Join performance poet, author and playwright Joelle Taylor in a poetry writing workshop for young people aged 15 to 19. Explore Leonardo da Vinci’s amazing anatomical drawings, then hone your writing with exercises and support from a professional poet to create a piece of poetry inspired by the body.
Joelle Taylor is an experienced workshop leader who has run the Poetry Society’s slam poetry competition, SLAMbassadors UK, for ten years. She has worked with young people all over the UK and beyond to create exciting, fresh poetry that leaps from the page. More information about the SLAMbassadors UK spoken word competition is at http://slam.poetrysociety.org.uk
This is a free event.
