Me and my co-worker Frances wanted to reach out to everyone during this difficult time, when it is so important we stay connected and positive. While the schools are closed I know a lot of people, myself included, are looking for creative things to do at home with their children. So I am running FREE live poetry workshops for kids online every Tuesday, with alternating workshops and sharing sessions.
These will take place on Zoom at the following times.
Workshops on Tuesdays
*5-8 yr olds – 10am-10.30am
*8-11 yr olds – 11am-11.40am
Sharings on Tuesdays
*All ages – 10am-10.30am
The workshops will usually include a fun warm up game and simple prompt-based writing exercise set out in a similar style to the tutorial videos I make for my YouTube channel (example below).
Put your email in the sign up box to join us. Log in details are sent every Monday.
These workshops are an absolutely free resource. I want to bring as much creativity and positivity as possible at the moment, as I think we all need to do what we can. That said, I am a freelance poet and educator working in uncertain times while our schools, libraries and theatres remain closed. So if you feel moved to do so, a quid or two in the ‘bucket’ would always be appreciated. You can support me easily and quickly here: https://ko-fi.com/simonmole
