Poetry has always been at the forefront of revolution. A poem can hold up a mirror to society and show what is really happening. Poetry can be powerful enough to reveal the truth in a post-truth era.

In this two-hour workshop, you’ll learn how to revolutionise your writing practice, develop fresh approaches and generate new writing.

We’ll examine a wide variety of poets including Gil Scott Heron and Lucile Clifton. We’ll also examine the role of social media and the mechanics of making viral poems during turbulent times.

Join the revolution with Nikita Gill & Write like a Grrrl! No matter whether you’re published or have never written a poem before, you’ll be welcomed and supported.

 

This is an online workshop & numbers are limited.
