Miriam Coley is a local writer who has led children’s writing workshops at P&G Wells for many years until Covid sadly put an end to these. We are delighted to welcome her back.
Miriam likes to write in many different genres. Currently she is developing a theatre piece with Bearface theatre at The Point, Eastleigh. Her poem, Layercake City was exhibited at Southampton’s Tiniest  Art Gallery earlier this year. Find out more at
Nature is a theme that Miriam constantly returns to in her writing and she’s excited to explore this with the young poets in their workshops. These will be fun, interactive and celebratory.
