Forming a Collective - Sat 9 Mar

Sat 9 Mar
1.30pm – 5pm
ARC, Stockton

in association with Apples and Snakes

Writing poetry can be a lonely business but not when you have got your mates around you. If you’ve ever wanted to set up your own spoken word collective or even if you’re just curious, join Slate and Apples and Snakes as we uncover everything you need to know to get started.

Afshan D’Souza-Lodhi from the Yoniverse will take you through the practicalities and pitfalls of working as part of a collective. By the end of the workshop you’ll have your own manifesto and enough fire in your belly to take over the world.

How to apply:
Open to Black* artists from across the North. If you require help with travel costs please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to discuss.

Workshop participants are warmly invited to stay at ARC for Deranged Poetesses, a 'pecha kucha style' live lit performance featuring black women poets, hosted by Apples and Snakes. There will be space for informal networking between these two events. Booking links to follow.

To Eclipse, Black includes anyone who is marginalized for their race or ethnicity.
