On the Saturday 10 September as part of Southend's Twilight Worlds, you are invited to join Maddi for a creative session on identity poems with a focus on erasure poetry. You will learn how to sculpt new pieces of poetry from existing text, as well as creative tools to express the facets of your identity through poetry. The workshop will end with an optional sharing round circle, where you will be invited to showcase your work with the group in a supportive environment. This workshop will last approximately 2 hours.
