Discover the heart and soul of Script Haven Ltd. as the remarkable Leena Batchelor, former Worcestershire Poet Laureate, takes us on a journey through the evolution of her dream. From her early days seeking solace in poetry to nurturing a community bookshop that blooms as a sanctuary for self-published, indie authors, and main stream publishers, Leena's story is one of unwavering resilience and dedication. She opens up about the challenges faced by creative communities, the critical role of the arts in emotional well-being, and how she turned adversity into the thriving pulse of literary and artistic expression that Script Haven Ltd. represents in Worcester, England.

Leena recites her poignant poem Shades of Existence, which speaks to the universal struggle against emotional harm. She highlights her commitment to mental health awareness and the far-reaching impact of her voice, touching lives during the solitude of the UK's COVID-19 lockdowns. From leaving poems in public spaces to rallying the support of the Hollywood Vampires for her empowering youth play, Out of the Darkness, Leena Batchelor embodies the very essence of poetry's ability to foster connection, inspire change, and leave an indelible mark on society.
