Women* in Teesside who write poetry are warmly invited to come to Poetry Playspaces with the Tees Women Poets on selected Saturdays of the month here at ARC.

Every month is a little different, as different members of the TWP sisterhood take a turn at being ‘in residence’, running workshops and activities about subjects that interest them, from modern sonnets to filmpoetry. Whether we’re reading other poets, writing our own work, or getting sneak previews of work in progress, you can expect to have fun with what happens when words are spoken out loud.

For full information on each Playspace, please follow the TWP on Eventbrite, where you can reserve your free Playspace tickets, and see other TWP events across Teesside and online.
