A Poetry Playspace is not quite a workshop, not quite a drop-in, but an opportunity to come together and explore ways of taking poetry beyond the loneliness of the page! Facilitated by members of the Tees Women Poets who may themselves be learning or experimenting with the techniques offered in the session, Playspaces may cover anything from yogic breathwork for performance to creating AI animations from poetry as prompt.

Playspaces are free to attend, but you can opt to donate to the TWP’s Future Fund if you like.

The TWP is an intersectional feminist organisation and welcomes transwomen and non-binary poets who are comfortable  in a woman-centred space.

Playspaces take place every third Saturday of the month from 2-5pm, with a hiatus in July and August. The 2024 programme is:

Saturday 15 June – Never Tell The Same Story Twice with Carmen Marcus : BOOK HERE
