These sessions are run by Paul Cookson, poet extraordinaire and Potential Plus UK friend from the Big Family Weekend 2019. Paul is offering workshops that will be a mixture of learning about how to write poems, developing your own creativity and style as you try it out and watching and taking part in performance. This is for children aged 6 – 10 years.
