Thursday, March 24, 2022
Opening Hours: 
6:30 - 8:30pm

Poetry is waiting to meet you!

An invitation to all who are curious about poetry: come along to this intimate evening of writing, sharing and discovering the magic of words.

Guided by Eeshita Azad, over the course of two hours, you will learn how to explore the shape of words and the connections between them, so you can find your poetic voice and articulate the stories you want to tell. There will also be the chance to take the mic and perform your work if you wish.

Pens, paper, and writing materials are included in the ticket price, along with a free drink of your choice.

All languages and levels of experience are welcome.
