The poet, spoken word maestro and singer-songwriter extraordinaire Leeto Thale is running a PEN workshop for Help for Heroes today at Tedworth House, one of the personnel recovery centres run by the organisation.
Leeto says of his workshop today:
Generally, I will be approaching it as an exercise to open them up, to feel comfortable expressing themselves because that’s one of the main things that one needs to integrate – confidence.
Leeto will be joined by Philip Cowell and Jo Glanville from English PEN. This workshop is part of a new series of creative writing workshops for returning soldiers, a joint partnership between English PEN and Help for Heroes.
Good luck everyone!
