Homeless people sit day in and day out in shelters, drinking coffee and often not getting the chance to allow the natural creativity to flow. Kantlijn offers them just that it is a place to write whatever they want. For some it is poems, for others a short story and for others again a letter to themselves where they can allow their emotions to flow. During the year they get the chance to read their work at events and even publish their work often in books, magazines and internet articles.

The work there as a volunteer is to get involved, write with them, talk with them and be there for them if and when they want to.
