Water Lane Coffeehouse

Water Lane, off Stour Street, Canterbury, Kent, CT1 2NQ

Talks, Music, Storytelling & Poetry 29th April – 7th May

Writing in a journal each morning can have a profoundly positive effect on our personal and creative growth as well as our emotional wellbeing.

Recently Canterbury Poet Laureate John Siddique invited people of Canterbury to join him for journal writing workshops in Water Lane Coffeehouse. Throughout his term as Canterbury’s Poet Laureate John invites those interested in making journalling part of their everyday lives, to meet and write together and respond to a provocation. John will be in Canterbury in March, May and July and when not here in person, will send provocations to inspire each weeks journal writing session.

These will be very informal meet ups in the wonderful environment of Water Lane Coffeehouse where you can also enjoy the most scrumptious food and some of the best coffee in town.

No previous writing experience necessary just bring a notebook and a pen.

We would love it if you could let us know if this interests you, just so that we can set up the space but booking ahead is not essential.

WHEN: Every Sunday between 10:00 – 11:00 | Starting January 10th

WHERE: Water Lane Coffeehouse, Stour Street, Canterbury
