Workshops at Barking Learning Centre and other news...

Tower Bridge

I will be poetting inside the engine rooms on Tower Bridge on the 27th and 28th of May for the 125th birthday celebrations. This will be as part of a fabulous event, involving circus acts, theatre companies and much more. Come along and say hello and write a couplet! Tower Hamlets and Southwark residents get in for just £1.

The Barking and Dagenham workshops are running again and there is always room for new faces and a friendly welcome from the regulars. I have been a mentor and workshop tutor for Barking and Dagenham's Pen to Print project for over three years - running poetry workshops and mentoring some fabulous writers. The workshops are free and bookable on eventbrite via this link
