Wordshops build confidence and empower people to have their voice heard. 

Word Travels conducts wordshops everywhere:

Corporate offices, remote communities, schools, festivals, prisons...Anywhere words travel

Participants are aged 3 to 93.

Spoken Word is an innovative way to build interest in literacy amongst young people and important public speaking skills for adults.

Our programs have been developed by Word Travels’ Creative Director, Miles Merrill. Merrill has 18 years experience as a performing writer and educator.

Sessions are delivered by experienced performing writers and poetry slam winners. We work with your organisation to find a Wordshop model and performing writer that suits your students or staff.
