Poetry workshop: Poetry and narrative

Date:Sat 22 Jun
Time:11am - 1.30pm
Venue:The Boardroom
Price:Free (ticketed)

Join for a gentle introduction to poetry and creative writing, exploring the power of words and images to recreate our inner world. We will be exploring the use of metaphors and personification to create a route between our brain and our heart. The emphasis is on free verse.

About workshop lead: Sonia Quintero is a Colombian poet and writer who has lived in Newham for several years. Informal studies in Philosophy and History of Art in Colombia lead to Sonia’s involvement in education and community works with several non-governmental projects there. More recent studies in Personal Development Gestalt Group, Humanistic Counselling, and Meditation in Art Therapy and Working with Anger in Art Therapy have furthered her understanding of the creative process.

No experience required. Art material will be provided. All abilities welcome.
