Word by Word Presents:
Workshop VI: Kicking Off
with Liv Wynter
Sunday 14th November, Delina Kitchen
13:00 - 15:00
In Workshop VI of the Word by Word Presents series, Liv will be discussing how to use words to antagonise, 'kick off' and discuss why sometimes this is absolutely necessary to challenge power and push forward change.
A full brief of this workshop will be coming shortly...
This workshop is open to anyone who would like to have a go (you must be aged 18 or over). No prior experience necessary.
**Black, people of colour, LGBTQ+ to the fore.**

All workshop participants will also be invited to submit any work they have written, whether during the workshop or in their own time, for our Zine: Issue 2.
