Covid has made us more aware of the injustices in our world. Inthese times of social unrest and Black Lives Matter protests, poetry offers a resource to explore the relationship between activism andconnection. Join poet and editor, Ambrose Musiyiwa, for a poetry workshop (in the morning), followed by readings (in the afternoon). Participants will have the opportunity to explore poetry capable of influencing social change, through a series of reflections, exercises and writing prompts. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to be in conversation with poets from the Black Lives Matter: Poems for a New World anthology (2020).

This workshop is free and for all levels and abilities – absolutely no writing experience required. All you need is a passion for justice and an interest in sharing your views through creativity. Black Lives Matter: Poems for a New World, published in November 2020, presents poems and short prose from around the world responding to Black Lives Matter.
