with Joelle Taylor

Silence was a song your enemy taught you.

This inspiring workshop for women will look at how to create compelling poetry and spoken word through unravelling life stories and reclaiming voices. Exploring a range of poetic and performance techniques, it’s suitable for all abilities.

Poet Joelle Taylor has recently completed an international tour of her latest poetry collection Songs My Enemy Taught Me, a book which looks at her life story fused with the experiences of women globally. She spent two years researching the collection, working with women from marginalised communities including prisons, refugee organisations, the care system, traveller camps and the battlefield. Joelle is an award-winning poet and playwright, widely anthologised, and the author of three full poetry collections and three plays. She is currently completing her debut book of short stories The Night Alphabet. She has featured on radio and television, and founded the UK’s national youth slam championships. Her work is taught as part of the English GCSE syllabus.
