The Durham/Tees Valley Stanza is a group of poets which meets every month to share our work and enjoy a wide range of poems.

If you’d like to get your imagination going and start writing some poems of your own, please join us for a Poetry Speed Dating workshop. All you need is a notebook, a pen and your imagination. We will have five poetry activities for you to take part in for 15-20 minutes each. When you get the signal, you move on to the next one, until you have a range of ideas and notes to stimulate your own writing.

No previous poetry experience necessary!
