I’m running a poetry workshop on Friday. I keep quiet about poetry most of the time, but the opportunity came up (through Spread the Word), and I’ve been flexing my poetry muscles at the Poetry Cafe’s Poetry@3, Poetry at Mr Lawrence’s and the Towersey Festival recently, so here I go!
I’ll be exploring how poems work and finding your own voice through use of as many senses as possible (very possibly using props!) Suitable for novice and more experienced writers of poetry.
Join me at
Donald Hope Library
Cavendish House, High Street, Colliers Wood, London SW19 2HR
Friday 21st February between 1-3pm. FREE!
Plans for the next workshop are shaping up:
A Garden Full of metaphor July 7th & 8th 2012 - poster
A Garden full of Metaphor
Join author Cherry Potts (Mosaic of Air, Tales Told Before Cockcrow, The Blackheath Onegin) for a weekend of writing and inspiration for all the senses in the glorious surroundings of the gardens at Sussex Prairies in Henfield, Sussex.
Why write in a garden?
A garden gives you the opportunity to make use of all your senses: you see the colours, you feel the textures, you hear the wind in the grasses, you smell the different perfumes; you taste the flavours in food cooked using the plants.
10-1 Sight Lines
2-5 Writing with your ears
2-5 motion and emotion
The Price: £120
- 4 workshops using NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) techniques to unleash your imagination and get you writing which will explore language, character creation and plotting
- unrestricted (exclusive in the mornings) access to the garden and farm
- home cooked refreshments and lunch, using ingredients from the farm and garden
Places to stay:
If you need somewhere to stay overnight, Sussex Prairies has a small B&B, we can provide a list of other nearby B&Bs, or you can camp on site. Ask for details.
