Growing Poetry Workshops exist to help spark inspiration – we write (and write) to all manner of exciting prompts in a supportive and creative group. It’s all about getting words on the page rather than reading them out to someone else – we never pressure anyone to share what they have written. Sometimes we ask you to bring a prompt, sometimes we work towards a theme – some of our workshops are free, some involve a fee (depending on the venue we are working with). We run these workshops because we love playing with words – we hope you will enjoy playing with us too!
We run monthly volunteer-led workshops outside the National Poetry Library at the Southbank Centre. We are branching out our workshop offering this year to online meet-ups and workshops at other venues around the country – how exciting!
