World Wide Verse

This workshop is open to anyone who speaks or wants to speak another language besides English, be it your mother tongue, your GCSEs, your work or just for fun.

It focuses on prose and verse poetry and most of the session uses freewriting. It is a non-judgemental, safe space with no right nor wrong answers.

We use untranslatable words, words in our languages and other languages, words in English with foreign origins, words we know and words we don’t, all of this while playing an international background of eclectic music from Super Furry Animals to Madredeus to Soda Stereo to Tarkan.

It was first successfully tested at House of Verse’s PlayHouse, hosted at Curve Theatre.
