Time:5.30 - 7.30pm

Curious about BSL poetry? This workshop will introduce you to the basics and encourage you to think about how you can use BSL creatively and compose your own short poems.

This workshop is aimed primarily at deaf BSL users though fluent hearing BSL users will be welcomed as well. This workshop is aimed at all ages, though under 16s should be accompanied by an adult. You're never too old or too young to do poetry!

Donna Williams is a deaf poet working in English and British Sign Language. Working with such different languages has inspired a deep interest in translation and how her work can be made accessible to signing and non-signing audiences. She has performed at festivals around the UK including the Edinburgh Fringe, as well as in America and Brazil. Several of her poems have been published, most recently in Stairs and Whispers, an anthology of poems by deaf and disabled poets, and issue 69 of Magma magazine. Her poems cover many themes, from bilingualism to identity to her beloved cats.
