We are all individuals with our own strengths and we all live in communities together. At this workshop for young writers aged 10 and 12, participants are invited to consider the themes of what makes us unique and what brings us all together.

Working with experienced authors and a team of Fighting Words volunteer tutors, participants will use their imaginations to create poems to express our differences as individuals and similarities as communities.
