In recognising the power of words both written and spoken, Working on Words exists to use words primarily, along with other creative streams and teaching vises to translate truths and transform lives.
Working on Words aims to affect the lives of many on an individual level, group and community level and eventually worldwide.
Current creative products that already exist consist are a book of poetry, a spoken word EP, 4 poetic calendars and a handful of songs and short sketches. Bespoke poetic pieces have also been created and often delivered live for special days and occasions. These are things we aim to build upon and expand.
