This Saturday, The Said Poets Society!

Our feature this week is The Said Poets Society.

The Said Poets Society cares about telling good stories. The stories we’re told in the media, the stories we tell each other, and especially the stories we tell ourselves, shape the world we live in. The Said Poets team believe that to inspire positive action, we first have to inspire positive thinking by letting young people know the power they hold as storytellers. The Society runs performance poetry workshops in Perth high schools to equip young people to create change through the power of stories.
