Is there a poem you really want to write but aren’t sure where to begin? Are you in the early stages of poetry writing and need a push? Are you stuck in a poetic rut and need some inspiration? This three-hour interactive workshop will help you explore ways into writing a poem through wider reading, lively discussion and fun and practical writing exercises. Once ideas are flowing and are on the page, you will begin to craft them into poems. You will have the opportunity to share your work and receive feedback in an encouraging environment. Build confidence in reading, writing and discussing poetry and come away with at least one new poem, with the beginnings of many more.
Suitable for writers at all levels.
