The Word Association is a collective of writers from different backgrounds who are passionate about using their art form to make a social impact.
Their work focuses on facilitating writing workshops, publishing poetic and literary works and creating art. With a specific focus on;
- Empowering under-represented and marginalised groups of people to explore their own feelings, concerns and life experiences through the development of their writing skills.
- Using language (spoken , written and within a variety of platforms) to confront, raise awareness , celebrate and explore stories relevant to communities and marginalised groups.
- Helping these groups of people so that their self-confidence is regained and to facilitate them to move onto areas of digital and traditional publishing and/or performance poetry.
