Online event: Poetry Workshop
Wednesday 9 August, 7pm-9pm
Ticket price: free (booking required)
Age guidance: 16+
Cathartic Creativity with Sharena Lee Satti will take you on a journey of self-discovery through poetry. The Bradford poet will gently take you down the poetic path of creative writing, unearthing themes such as identity, the power of your ancestral routes, and home.
The workshop is open to all: the curious, the diary writer, the poetry listener, the person wanting to try something new. Take part from the comfort of your own home. In the safe, gentle space Sharena creates online.
All you need is an open mind. A pen and notebook.
NOTE: Booking required: a link to access this webinar will be sent to you the day before the event.
