The Poetry Door: Who Am I?

October 15 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

In these workshops, we will consider how poetry can be a tool for self-expression and social justice, for empathy, and empowerment.

This month’s workshop is on the topic “Who am I?” We will look at how to write for self-expression and think about topics like Identity, Memory and Belonging.
Everyone has something valuable to express and poetry can help us process our own experiences and learn about the experiences of others. Through readings, interactive exercises, group writing games, and generative prompts, we will explore the power and joy of writing together. We’ll be working in a variety of forms, inspired by a diverse set of voices and themes. Looking forward to collaborating with you all and seeing your beautiful words!
These sessions will be led by Serena Alagappan. Serena is a writer and researcher interested in the impact of creative writing on society. She has studied at Princeton and Oxford Universities and published her work in literary journals across the US and UK.
This workshop is best suited for people aged 13-18. No experience with poetry is required, and all materials will be provided. Let us know you’re coming by booking a ticket HERE.
The Oxford Poetry Library is an accessible space but please contact us in advance if you have any access needs so we can accommodate those for you. You can email us on oxfordpoetrylibrary@gmail.com or using the contact form below.
