Any women* poets who live or work in Teesside are warmly invited to join the TWP (Tees Women Poets) for a series of four drop-in Poetry Playspaces on Saturdays 27 August, 17 September, 15 October and 26 November.

How does it work? Each Saturday has the same basic structure, with three sessions throughout the afternoon and evening. Come to whichever ones you fancy, as many as you like!

Each session will be very loosely led by various members of the TWP sisterhood, and by you – they’re not workshops, they’re spaces for co-creation, play, and connection.

There is time between each session for pure socialising and making new poetry friends over a cup of tea.

  • 2pm – 3.30pm = Collaborative Writing. Join a project in progress, or start your own and find a writing partner.
  • 4pm – 5.30pm = Compassionate Critique. Bring your poems in progress and get helpful feedback.
  • 6.30pm – 8.30pm = Performance Lab. Rehearse and practice skills and techniques together.

Reserve your free place now!
