Topical Poetry Workshops as an Expression of How The World Sometimes Makes us Feel

Poetry Prescribed deliver therapeutic workshops promoting poetry as a self healing tool; and an effective way to manage mental health and wellbeing. Poetry has the ability to inspire thought, expression, and creativity. We believe that through poetry we can connect to self, others, and our communities.

Hosted by Miss Yankey our workshops offer thought provoking sessions of reading, speaking, creating and sharing poetry on various topics. Please remaining 2018 workshop dates with information below:

You do not need to be a poet to join us! The only requirements for attending our workshops are an open mind, and a willingness to explore your own creative potential in a nurturing and judgement free environment.

Poetry has the ability to inspire thought, change and creativity; it can also promote healing and personal growth. Through poetry we can creatively connect to self, others, and our communities.

>>> 6th Oct: Love & Other Stuff

There are said to be 7 types of love: passionate, friendship, familial, universal, uncommitted, practical, and self love. In a society that places a huge focus on romantic love, are we neglecting other types of love that are more readily accessible and that may, especially in the longer term, prove more healing and fulfilling? Join us in conversation and creation as we explore poetry on the topic of ‘love and other stuff’.

>>> 10th Nov: Discussing Discrimination

Humans are naturally motivated to categorise people and objects. This is normal cognitive behaviour. But discrimination goes beyond that. Research shows that the attitudes of people who discriminate are a reflection of a complex set of factors including their history, socio-cultural practices, economic forces, sociological trends and the influence of community and family beliefs. Post Brexit Britain has seen a spike in hate crimes- discrimination in 2018 is alive and kicking. This workshop will take a look at various types of discrimination, how it affects people, and what causes it.

>>> 8th Dec: The Pursuit of Happiness

Many of us consider happiness to be the most important goal in life, but what exactly is happiness? How do we go about finding it? Are we destined to always be in pursuit of happiness- and if we do manage to find it, how do we maintain it? Through poetry we will discuss what happiness means to others, and explore how we define our own happiness too.
