Dock Monologues with Yolanda Mercy

Taking inspiration from the Royal Docks, people and places, join writer and performer Yolanda Mercy for this fun, engaging - and very practical - online (via Zoom) creative writing session for adults. Yolanda will guide participants through the process of writing a short monologue, drawing on their lived experience as inspiration, and the landscape of the Royal Docks. The session will end in an informal sharing, where participants can perform the piece that they created (if they wish!).

Please sign up using the Eventbrite link below and will be sent the joining details and any instructions for joining the session:

Who is this for?

Open to anyone over 18, who is keen to explore writing, empower their voice or improve their wellbeing.

As inspiration, you might want to have a listen online to Arch 468’s This is Who We Are project, as part of Join the Docks.

Only 20 spaces are available for the workshop, so if you can no longer attend, please let us know so someone else can take your space.
