Prior to her debut at Pen:Chant later the same evening, London Laureate Laurie Bolger presents this special workshop for poets and spoken word artists, both budding and fully bloomed.
After the success of her debut collection Box Rooms, poet Laurie Bolger encourages participants to celebrate their own unique writing style and voice whilst finding poetry in the everyday.
Tickets for the workshop are free, or pay £5 to include entry to Pen:Chant @ Gullivers, NQ the same evening, featuring sets from Laurie and Bethlehem Casuals, plus special guests (only available to over 18s).
Laurie Bolger is poet and presenter who’s style is consistently down-to-earth and accessible. Laurie hosts BANG Said the Gun, London's leading Stand-Up Poetry Night and multi-award winning poetry radio show ‘Round @ Laurie’s' live from Camden’s iconic Roundhouse.
Laurie was recently appointed London’s lead facilitator for BBC 1Xtra’s Words First and has written poetry for the likes of Tate Modern, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and Royal Albert Hall.
