Get Writing

Welcome to our Get Writing workshop. This workshop has been designed for our intergenerational programme Get Going that works with primary school students and community groups for the over 60s. This workshop will give you tips and exercises to create a piece of poetry.

Written by Creative Practitioners Freyja Winterson and Philippa Hogg and delivered alongside our facilitators Mumba Dodwell and Manny Brown, this workshop is broken down into sections so you can complete it in your own time at your own pace.

You’ll need a pen and paper and if you get stuck or need any assistance you can contact us at ovcommunity@oldvictheatre.com.

These activities explore the theme of kindness but feel free to choose your own theme as a starting point. Good luck and have fun.
