Hidden Light Creative Poetry Workshops launching on Tuesday May 3rd at The Yurt Café in Limehouse, East London <3 come on down!


Hidden Light Creative Poetry Workshops present an opportunity to explore the magic of poetry in a nurturing, supportive environment, welcoming all, regardless of your background or previous experience. The sessions consist of looking at a variety of poetry, discussing and experimenting with our own writing, encouraging sharing and building a community centred around the joy and hopefulness inherent to creativity. "Hidden Light" takes its name from a sense of the power of creative writing to bring out the light within ourselves and our world, and to illuminate optimism amidst today's challenges. We are based at the Royal Foundation of St Katherine, adjoining the beautiful Yurt Café, and are excited to encourage participants to get involved in live poetry performance opportunities in the Yurt space.
