Haiku Workshop with Spork!



Celebrated spoken-word artist Liv Torc brings a special writing workshop to St Thomas Library, Exeter, as part of the Feel Good Fortnight. With support from local poet and performer Chris White.

Using poetry, creative writing & joyful expression we’ll explore themes of wellbeing; taking inspiration from Liv’s global ‘Haiflu project,’ which uses haiku, photography & music to tell the social history of lockdown. Together we’ll learn new ways of writing, share some work and tell our stories using haiku & group poetry.

All human-beings welcome! No preparation or experience needed. All you need is a willingness to have a go.

To reserve your place, please email sporkpoetry@gmail.com


Liv is an experienced workshop facilitator who’s been lead artist on Take Art’s social prescribing project Word/Play for nearly ten years, supporting hundreds of adults to achieve better mental health through creativity & poetry. She’s run large scale participation projects engaging thousands of people from all over the world to use poetry in telling their stories.

Chris White is a writer & performer who uses poetry & comedy to tell silly & surreal stories. A former ‘Bard of Exeter’ and the first ‘Riddler in Residence’ at Exeter Cathedral.

Please note, the upstairs space at St Thomas Library is only accessible via a set of stairs. Babies & younger children are welcome! For any other access related enquiries, please email sporkpoetry@gmail.com
