“Turn your broken heart into art”

 tWord is a safe space for anyone who wants to explore poetry and any creative writing, especially poetry, both written and spoken. tWord is a collective where members gather to write and review each other’s work, as well as reading and performing original work. The sessions are open to everyone to sit in and participate. The group meets once a week, the activities alternating every week. One week will be dedicated to writing and peer review, the other will be dedicated to readings.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
