Thriving Women

TWP works in partnership with Thrive Charity to run this collective of women poets with lived experience of poverty, who use their work to raise awareness, campaign against social injustice, and speak truth to power.

Free writing workshops throughout the year are focused on producing material for International Women’s Day, International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, and other key civic milestones.

TWP funds the workshop facilitator, and the production and launch of an anthology and a filmpoem every year.

To be part of this group, please contact us with ‘Thriving Women’ in the subject line and we will put you in direct contact with the lead artist Julie Easley.
