This Saturday 5th September we will be at the Stirchley Late Summer bash in Stirchley Park with the wonderful Tamar Williams. Find us at 12pm and 2pm for some interactive storytelling workshops.
Local Arts charity, Leaveners, introduced the digital ‘Poets’ Corner’ in May 2015, showcasing and supporting aspiring poets. Around the same time the P Cafe in Stirchley opened its doors, bringing exciting poetry, performance and philosophy events to the area.
Both Leaveners and the P Cafe aim to support aspiring poets, by giving them different platforms to reach a wider audience and develop their skills further. The P Cafe will display a different poem from the ‘Poets Corner’ every month, and host the open ‘Crunch’ sessions on creative writing.
Our next Networking Meeting will be held at P Cafe in Stirchley from 6pm on Thursday 16th July.
We will be welcoming Kate Andrews to talk to us about the Stirchley Baths development, be discussing plans for the coming year and of course hearing updates from all of you.
Hope to see you there!
