Community Courses

Chalk the Sun tutors have wide experience of teaching in community settings including Adult Education, HMP Belmarsh, the Furzedown Project for Bengali women, schools, libraries, museums, galleries, youth clubs, care homes and building sites..

We’ve worked for the last five years with Mimosa (formerly Imani), a project for women, including survivors of domestic abuse, in Battersea, developing materials and teaching methodologies especially for this talented yet multi-disadvantaged group. After a year the women gained so much confidence and skill, they created, with Jo Hepplewhite’s editorial input, a collection of poems and prose called Stand In Love, which is moving, funny and lyrical.

We are happy to devise customised workshops, courses, enrichment activities, events and competitions for your organisation, school, or festival. Contact us to talk about how we can bring creative writing into your organisation.
