Out-Spoken Poetry Masterclass: June

Learn ways to write your own truth at our three-hour workshop, this month hosted by the freethinking poet and host of Out-Spoken, Joelle Taylor.

Poet-educator, playwright, author and editor Joelle Taylor has performed internationally and is the author of three collections of poetry, most recently Songs My Enemy Taught Me.

In 2001 she founded the national youth slam championships, running them for the next 18 years. From September 2020 she will be the editor at Out-Spoken Press.

Open to all ages and abilities, the Out-Spoken Masterclass gives anyone with an interest in poetry a chance to work with acclaimed writers.

Learn some of their methods and approaches to crafting beautiful and original poetry.
