Positive Poetry for People in a Pandemic – Black History Month

Wednesday 27 October 2021

We’re all in the thick of it, surviving a pandemic, but what can help us in the striving to THRIVE in a pandemic?


Sharmay Mitchell will lend some positive words from her poetry book ‘be the Uplifter: positive Poems’ and share how creativity nurtures her mental wellbeing.

About the speaker:

Sharmay Mitchell is the author of ‘be the Uplifter: Positive Poems’ and created her collection from works completed over the course of a challenge that saw her write a poem every day for more than three years.

She is a born and bred Londoner of Dominican and Saint Lucian parentage who also writes children’s songs and turns them into stop motion videos. One of her poems featured in the Notting Hill Carnival’s virtual event in 2020, she has appeared twice at the Queen’s Park Book Festival in 2019 and this year and her poetry has been published in the Words By__ anthology, raising funds for UNICEF.
