Poetry Pause

Several women enjoyed a memorable workshop with acclaimed poet ‘Surfing Sofas’, currently poet in residence at the Museum of Homelessness. Collaborating with LCH Homeless and Health Inclusion Team, this special event was poignant, fearless, sombre, joyous, open and full of warmth. Sharing poems and life experience, ‘Surfing Sofas’ gave tips on writing poetry; this was enthusiastically received and reciprocated by the women sharing their own resonant work. At times overwhelmingly raw and painful, this was nonetheless loved by everyone there and will hopefully be repeated soon.
