The TWP is a performance poetry collective for women who live or work in Teesside. We run two events every month, a first Tuesday writing group, and a third Saturday performance club, both held at ARC Arts Centre in Stockton, where we have access to theatre space, full PA and lighting rig for extra excitement!

Since forming in 2012, the group have also written and performed commissioned pieces at festivals and in major art galleries, as well as curating their own events. With a particular love for writing from art and combining words with images, the latest project for the TWP is a series of ‘PechaKucha’ style events in which poets speak to timed slides. Called Deranged Poetesses, our 2018 programme of three commissioned events will be themed ‘Maidens’, ‘Mothers’ and ‘Crones’.
