Join Yvonne Hercules for a creative lyric writing & poetry workshop. The workshop will be based on creating lyrical work that references identity, background and the nuances surrounding the experiences of minority individuals.

There is no prerequisite for any previous experience within lyric writing or poetry as Yvonne will be guiding you through the process using visual and/or audio to support your creative process. There will also be space for discussion both during and after the workshop.
Yvonne Hercules is a singer-songwriter/artist & performer based in Cambridge UK. Her music has received nods from publications including Clash Magazine, The Line of Best Fit, Afropunk, and others and she has received support from PRS Foundation, Arts Council England towards her work.
