About the event

How do we revisit our published and unpublished work in order to make something new from it? Is this 're-visiting' a valuable way to deepen our practice, to look at our creative preoccupations in new ways and from different perspectives? Do we only ever write one poem using different words? Can this make us feel stuck, and how do we liberate ourselves to go back, re-tread old ground and dig up new poetry bones? Participants will be given creative prompts and plenty of quiet, relaxed time to write. Open to new and experienced writers.

Workshop dates (please note this is a two-part workshop)

Sunday 10th Feb: 4.30-6pm

Sunday 17th Feb: 4.30-6pm
