Leeds Poetry Festival I Freedom of Expression: workshop

Join Rebecca Pythian, who co-runs Manchester-based Blue Balloon, for a workshop exploring different techniques and exercises to help you find freedom in your writing styles.

Freedom of expression began as an event which Blue Balloon Theatre previously ran in Manchester City Centre in 2017. It consisted of artists from across the UK coming together to express themselves; giving them the chance to say what they wanted to say, however they wanted to say it through original writing. Since then, they've adapted the idea into a unique and explorative writing workshop, for poets and prose writers alike.

The class is designed to free up & loosen your poetry. Each of these exercises can spark incredibly different responses and thus, encourages you to write creatively in a way that is authentic and true to yourselves.

Rebecca Phythian is a poet, actor and singer from Manchester. She is the co-founder of Blue Balloon Theatre, which offers opportunities to budding performers across the North-West.
