Poetry and workshops with Joseph

Join Joseph Coelho in a fun and thrilling world where statues hunger for blood, where puberty can be cool and where a story can be told through poems. Joseph will share poems to make you laugh, think and yelp from his second poetry collection Overheard in a Tower Block. Joseph also does workshops with groups up to 20. Have fun creating poems that get to the heart of a story, poems that are fun, poems that are magic, poems to make your friends and family gasp!
