The Werewolf Tales poetry workshop with Joseph Coehlo

Sold out
Attic
Part of STORYSTOCK

Come and see performance poet and playwright Joseph Coelho as he brings the poems from his debut collection Werewolf Club Rules off the page with a series of explosive interactive performances, that draw on a long theatrical background as a performer and playwright for the UK’s top children’s theatres.
 
Joseph has been busy travelling the country with his solo shows, The PoetryJoe Show and Pop-Up Flashback, wowing sellout audiences with glowing poems about folding grannies and naughty hamsters, and giant entering magical worlds via some giant pop-ups. His poetry has appeared in many anthologies and theatre productions. He has even been beamed on to Cbeebies Rhyme Rocket to share his poem Bug Stew and is a short listed poet for the CLPE Poetry Award 2015. With over twelve years’ experience engaging children with literacy through fun and creative means, Joseph will not only offer up a menu of poems about school days, inspiring teachers, crazy scientists, artistic snails and of course werewolves(!) but will also get you wild about writing.
