Children's Poetry Workshops

"Reading poetry aloud to and with children can have benefits that last for years."

Poetry Prescribed have developed a series of interactive children's poetry workshops with themes including self esteem; imagination & creativity; bullying; cyber bullying; personal rights and responsibilities; positive thinking; mental health awareness and more. Using poetry, children are invited to explore a range of topics in a safe and nurturing environment. The primary focus of our workshops is to encourage thought and self expression using a series of games, activities and exercises. Not only do our workshops offer therapeutic benefits, they also support learning and development.
