Manchester based writer, Louis Glazzard, is running a poetry workshop in collaboration with Out on the Page. This workshop that explores identity in writing and how to express your unique perspective as a writer.

Bouncing off from some research around identity in literature, the workshop uses a psychological theory that suggests identity is made up in several pillars. These are; Body & Mind, Social, Material, Work and Values. This theory will be used as inspiration for various writing prompts with different writing techniques.

At the end of the workshop we will welcome a sharing space to discuss the ideas and share some work.
