Join Sampad for a live poetry performance and an interactive writing workshop session with Birmingham-based performance artist Zeddie Lawal.
Zeddie will perform some of her works and then deliver practical exercises for participants, to help to build their confidence and encourage them to share their own stories. As part of this she will break down boundaries for people who are new to sharing their own work.
Participants will have a great opportunity to present their writing in an open mic session within a supportive environment.
