    In 2022 sessions will continue on July 13th with a one-off special with Hannah Lowe - poet, memoirist and academic. Hannah's latest book, The Kids, a Poetry Book Society ‘Choice’ for Autumn, was shortlisted for the T.S Eliot Prize and won the Costa Poetry Award and the Costa Book of the Year, 2021. Her first poetry collection Chick (Bloodaxe, 2013) won the Michael Murphy Memorial Award for Best First Collection. In September 2014, she was named as one of 20 Next Generation poets. She undertook her AHRC-funded PhD in Creative Writing at Newcastle University, and now lectures in Creative Writing at Brunel University. 

    Each Wednesday WORD!s session is self contained and suitable for all levels. So - wherever you are - and whenever you feel ready to give one a whirl, do get in touch. If you’re looking for something new (and or tried and tested!) to feed your mind, develop your talents, boost your wellbeing and connect you to others - we’d love to involve you.
