Event description

Description

Are you 16-25 years old? Do you have a passion for storytelling, rap, short stories, poetry, photography, illustration etc? Do you want to get published and create an interactive community dialogue while you’re at it?

Join local storyteller Sista Zai Zanda in our weekly new community storytelling project, The Poetree!

Sessions will run every week and alternate between:

‘Creative storytelling workshops’ with storyteller, educator and radio producer Sista Zai Zanda from ‘The Pan Afrikan Poets Café’ (this forms the ‘The Poetree Group’, aged 16-25)
&
‘Open writing sessions’. The group will write quietly for 90 minutes, responding to prompts set by The Poetree group. This will be followed by 30 minutes to share ideas, network and socialise. There is no workshopping, so it doesn’t matter what you are writing or which language you are writing in!

Open to all ages.

BYO laptops/writing materials.
Wi-Fi and power available.
Light refreshments served

Bookings are essential. There is no need to being a ticket with you to this event.
