Do you want to write creatively but you don't know where to start? Get advice on journal keeping, play with rhymes and build poems with people who appreciate your point of view, or simply find the sparks to light up your life stories.
Come and try our two-hour sessions hosted by poet and diarist Steve Urwin, a versatile published performer who is passionate about wordplay as a tool for personal wellbeing.

We’ve successfully delivered our first session on 3rd October.

“A huge thank you to Steve Urwin for coming along to our Open Door session on 3rd October for our first Ways with Words session. I think I can safely say, not all of us thought we could write, but some real talent was unleashed and we’re really looking forward to the next 5 sessions.”

We'll deliver 5 other Creative Writing sessions in our Open Door group in Jarrow in October.

If you’re a South Tyneside resident why not join us on World Mental Health Day on 10th October, or for one of the future sessions to explore your inner talents and have a few laughs in relaxed company. The session takes place at Jarrow Hub at 1.30-3.30pm.
