Free Workshops

Hi, I’m Simon Mole, and I’m a poet. I have 15 years experience using poetry and rap in education and community settings. I am currently the Digital Poet in Residence for National Literacy Trust, and I was recently made an official National Poetry Day Ambassador.

I run 2 live online poetry workshops a month, and you can sign up for free at the bottom of this page. For more information, including the latest schedule please see my Patreon page:

We usually start with a few fun warm up games to build confidence and skills, before I guide the group through a prompt-based writing exercise set out in a similar style to the tutorial videos I make for my YouTube channel, which are used by thousands of teachers and children across the world.

If you are trying a workshop for the first time, or want to be part of the regular group but aren’t currently able to afford the monthly fee, just whack your details in the form below and you will be sent the logins to the zooms.
