Free as a Word – workshops with Solent Mind
In partnership with Solent Mind, in September the festival is providing a series of creative poetry writing workshops for the clients of the Winchester Wellbeing Centre. Called Free as a Word they will focus on encouraging participants to express themselves and develop their confidence through writing poetry.
The workshops are being devised and facilitated by Southampton poet Matt West, founding director of Artful Scribe and Southampton’s first poet laureate for children.
Solent Mind is the leading mental health charity across Hampshire. Their role is to support and advise anyone in Hampshire with a mental health problem. Find out more about what they do at www.solentmind.org.uk.
