Belonging and Memory: a workshop to find your poetic voice
with poet, performer and activist Amina Atiq
BBC Words First Finalist 2019 Amina Atiq leads a workshop focused on poetry and performance. Drawing on themes of lived experience, memory and belonging, Amina will share tools you can use in your work to develop your own unique voice and find inspiration in your life.
This workshop allows you to gently ask yourself questions like: Who do you write for? Who inspires you? How do you feel about sharing a poem in front of an audience – liberating, overwhelming? Or both?
This workshop is suitable for poets of all ages and experience levels.
