Private Poetry Workshops in London 

with South Bank Poetry

South Bank Poetry is now offering an exciting range of private group poetry workshops in London. Run by co-editor and publisher Katherine Lockton. You can choose from a range of workshop options that incorporate drama, music, mindfulness and physical work.

At South Bank Poetry, we believe poetry and writing takes guts and that developing a participant’s confidence and creative voice plays a fundamental role in the outcome. Offering an inclusive and welcoming environment, our workshops are goal-orientated but remain engaging and fun all the while.

Crucially, the private poetry workshops we offer are tailored to your needs and what you hope to gain. Whether you are a primary school wanting students to explore imagery and improve literacy skills, or a corporate company seeking to strengthen teamwork skills and spark imaginative thinking, we can provide a private writing workshop that is perfect for you.

  • “Katherine was kind enough to host a bespoke Poetry workshop for 12 adults in the spirit of team-building and broadening horizons. She was considerate to the fact that many of the group were novices. She was also very well prepared for the session, we were provided with questionnaires prior to the workshop to share our experience levels and highlight particular interests. The workshop was greatly enjoy by all those who participated and helped to strengthen bonds of friendship and foster common understanding in the group. Highly recommended way to spend an evening with friends or colleagues!”
