The Soulful Group is an emerging social enterprise that aims for genuine human connectivity through the power of words. We are Leicester-based, with an international footprint, and completely volunteer-run. We were organically founded on National Potery Day 2017 by Shobana Patel, a local poet/writer. We harness the tools of publishing, events & media to promote the art & craft of poetry, spoken word & storytelling. We will have published 9 authors by the end of 2019 and plan to publish a further 9 by the end of 2020. We have hosted multiple local events over the last two years and have plans for a more regular line up of meaningful events next year to satisfy our growing local audience.
