Centre for Stories
Poetry Workshop is a safe and dynamic space where you can craft your poetry and offer feedback to other poets. It provides a collaborative opportunity to share your work-in-progress. It will be focussed on page poets who consider themselves to be emerging. This will be a friendly and relaxed environment so bring a plate of food to share if you like and an open frame of mind. Bringing a poem and providing constructive comments on others’ work is a must.
