About me

I’m Laurie Bolger. I’m a London based writer & facilitator.

My first poetry book is ‘Box Rooms.’ My work has featured at Glastonbury Festival, the Royal Albert Hall, TATE, Sky Arts & BBC platforms.

I’ve been running creative workshops for the past decade allowing people to celebrate their own unique voices. I’m the founder of The Creative Writing Breakfast Club which featured in Time Out‘s ‘One Good Thing’ as well as various magazines and online festivals.

This online session brings people together on Sunday morning for a scribble & a feel good lift. I also run 121 sessions where I work with individual poets to develop their work.

I’ve collaborated with global brands and organisations such as Google, Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Nationwide Building Society, Penhaligons & EY. During lockdown, I’ve led workshops which raised funds for charities Choose Love, Trussell Trust & Mind.
