Suffolk Libraries
Where I belong.
We’re the independent charity that runs Suffolk’s library service. We nurture children’s literacy, support vulnerable people and promote wellbeing across Suffolk.
Poppy Stevens
Lover of words, tea, cake and cows!
Poppy Stevens is a community arts practitioner, poet and performer. Her writing has been commissioned and published by The National Centre for Writing, The Young Norfolk Arts Trust, TOAST Poetry, BBC Radio Norfolk & Suffolk & Atrium poetry. Poppy works within the community delivering creative workshops to a diverse range of people. Her work with children spans from EYFS to Key Stage 4 both in schools, alternative provisions and community settings. Poppy runs a regular dyslexia inclusive writing club. These courses focus on taking the fear out of reading and writing and instead celebrate imagination, creativity and storytelling. As someone with dyslexia Poppy understands the importance of creating non judgemental spaces for neurodivergent young people to express their ideas.

Laughter is the best medicine.
Now a library and Information Advisor, I have previously worked with children for 30 + years. I have worked with all ages and more recently in the Health visiting service with babies and toddlers. I love to engage with children and believe that all work should be made fun.

Cancellation Policy
Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
