About the Event

In  the same way that learning to make an omelette doesn't make us a chef,  or making a clay pot doesn't make us a ceramicist, writing a poem  doesn't make us a poet.  However, we might turn out to love making  omelettes or pots or writing a poem or two.  If you would like the  latter to be true, whatever your experience or absence thereof, this  might be for you.  Over these 4 weeks we'll come together to work and  play with letting poems appear. We'll read and write poems, move to some  fab music and see what happens.  Work or play or both, it's up to you -  together we'll hear and write the unexpected.   Sue is not a poet, and doesn’t want to be, yet she loves poetry and wants to play with it. Rachel is a poet and always will be, she loves poetry and wants to work with it. 

Dates & Times: 17 Feb 5-8pm 24 Feb 5-7pm 3 Mar 5-7pm 10 Mar 5-8pm Maximum 14 people  

Payment: In  this time, when some people have lost their incomes and some haven’t,  we are offering a sliding scale of £80-£120. If you’re in a position to  contribute more than £120 that enables us to offer more places to people  on lower incomes.  If you need to pay less than £80, get in touch.
