FRI 8TH JULY - 11am-12.15pm
ST THOMAS LIBRARY, exeter
COST: £2

Celebrated spoken-word artist Liv Torc brings a special writing workshop to St Thomas Library, Exeter, as part of the Feel Good Fortnight. With support from local poet and performer Chris White.


Using poetry, creative writing & joyful expression we’ll explore themes of wellbeing; taking inspiration from Liv’s global ‘Haiflu project,’ which uses haiku, photography & music to tell the social history of lockdown. Together we’ll learn new ways of writing, share some work and tell our stories using haiku & group poetry.


All human-beings welcome! No preparation or experience needed. All you need is a willingness to have a go.
