A Bradford poet is bringing another creative writing course to Manningham Library.

The sessions are led by Nabeela Ahmed, a popular writer, multilingual poet and spoken word artist, and other well established tutors.

Starting from January 21, Nabeela will encourage aspiring writers to dive into different forms of writing, create more work, and receive feedback on their creations.

The ticket fee is £60 for ten sessions, but free places are available for students aged 18 and over and those on benefits, including pension credit.

Sessions take place every Saturday between 10am and 12pm – ending with an artist’s retreat.

Nabeela, who creates work in English, Urdu and Pahari, described creative writing as “empowering”.

She told the T&A: “Creative writing is a form of expression that heals you and also gives you feedback about your inner workings and thus transforms you.

“Whether it’s poetry or people who come and write memoirs or short stories, it doesn’t matter what form. It always reflects a bit about who you are and what your thoughts are.”
