Inspirational, enriching, informative, reflective poetry workshops available for groups of between 20  to 30 individuals. They discuss, brainstorm, note down, participate in some drama, explore feelings, discuss again and  then write!

Depending on the workshop, all participants would be encouraged to reflect on general  feelings  and emotions about MOVING ON, to perhaps, a new school or a new year group. They may possibly be asked to discuss POSITIVE CHOICES to enhance life experinces.The workshop would also work towards promoting a sense of confidence and empowerment regarding their own IDENTITY.

Her  workshops and sessions are a time to explore and create. This will be done sometimes through role play, through drama and always through discussion to gather pertinent words and phrases to produce personal prose and poetry.
