Jasmine leads workshops in community centres, as well as regular school clubs and occasional day visits in schools. She runs CPD courses for psychotherapists and counsellors on using writing in therapy and facilitates creative sex education workshops for young people.
“Jasmine came to lead two poetry workshops in Years 5 & 6. The children benefited hugely from her input and were able to create and perform a poem around the theme of London.
Jasmine was enthusiastic and energetic with the children and inspired them to produce some outstanding work.
The final assembly, where a selection of children read out their poems, was very impressive and thoroughly enjoyed by the rest of the school. A hugely positive experience!!”
Teacher from L’Ecole de Battersea, London
She also coordinates West Midlands Poets’ Place. Run in association with Apples and Snakes and the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, this fortnightly session acts as an informal, flexible meeting point which gives poets the opportunity to network, receive critical feedback and try a writing exercise. You can keep up to date with sessions through the Poets’ Place Facebook Page.
Jasmine believes in the multiple powers of spoken word to develop a participant’s communication skills, self expression and confidence. She is particularly interested in taboo, its deconstruction and its power over language.
Jasmine is available for workshops, facilitation and project coordination and can be contacted via email.
