Poetry Workshop: 29 April

I’m very happy to announce that a poetry workshop will take place on Sunday 29th April 2-4pm at the Reading Room in Old Beaconsfield.

The workshop will be led by Tori Truslow, an experienced poetry workshop leader and it promises to be fun for all ages and abilities. By the end of the workshop you will have written a brand new poem and, should you wish to do so, you’d be very welcome to read it at The Jolly Cricketers the following night.
The workshop costs £12 (or £10 for concessions or if you book online). Coffee and tea are included in the price.
Here is the blurb:
Discover new ground in this boundary-crossing poetry workshop, taking inspiration from maps. Poet Tori Truslow will guide participants through a series of games, exercises and discussions, looking at how poetry can bring together the known and the unknown, fact and fantasy. The workshop will encourage poets to act as map-makers, investigating the borderlands between experience and imagination as they consider how to explore themselves in words. Participants will produce a draft map poem and will receive advice on how to develop it, with the chance to share and receive feedback from the group in a constructive environment. All ages welcome!
