Creative writing can unlock so much in terms of confidence, artistry, self-expression, community, storytelling, catharsis and so much more! Spoken Word, Verse and Prose is for everyone, no one should be left out of the chance to feel fancy-free; bold and courageous with their pen or the mic. Poetry is a perfect place to start! Lit.Licks supports youth organisations and schools by building workshops and events, introducing a fun, immersive and therapeutic way to look at writing. At the end of 2019, we teamed up with activist, educator and BeIntrinsic founder Karl Don on his Flash Fiction project, Revolving Doors #RD2019 with Arts Council and Soap Box Islington. Check out the video below. Continuing our partnership with BeIntrinsic among numerous projects including mentoring and larger group showcases, we have also partnered with Unitas Youth Zone, Barnet delivering a weekly workshop for their senior group. Ages 12-18. Improving our methods and expanding our reach is always a priority so feel free to get in touch with suggestions or areas you would like us to explore.

The beautiful charitable organisation, Culpeper Community Garden, opens its gates to us once more. In association with Islington Council's Holiday Activity scheme, providing free lunches for local school kids.
We'll be programming activities and events for children ages 8 -16 years old.
With art workshops, nature classes, poetry, circus, and dance it's going to be a packed four weeks! Tue-Friday (3rd - 27th August)
The aim of our Summer Program is to provide engaging, imaginative events for young people. The garden is a special place for all ages and with an aim to highlight nature and ecology, most exercises will be utilising the wonderful environment that surrounds us.
