My Poetry Workshop with Altrincham Girls!

Tonight I did one of the things I really enjoy as a writer and that was discovering fresh budding talent! I spent the evening conducting a poetry workshop in Altrincham with two groups of young teenage girls and loved every minute of it. To instil the belief in unique individuals that their voice matters, to be able to help build their confidence when expressing themselves and then listening to their wonderful creations is such a blessing. They taught me what it was like again to be at the cusp of new and nervous beginnings and how really the learning process never stops. We created poems together, brain stormed, analysed and found different ways to express thoughts! Loved working with these amazingly talented young ladies. Watch this space for their writing 🙂 xxx
