Giving Place a Voice: Poetry Workshop with Elizabeth Lewis Williams

Friday 24 May
National Centre for Writing at Dragon Hall
11.00 - 13.00
£ 35.00 - (£25.00 conc)

Join Elizabeth Lewis Williams for a relaxed poetry workshop where you will experiment with giving place a voice in your poetry.

‘Who’s this moving alive over the moor?’ 

How do you give a place a voice? In this relaxed poetry workshop, you will consider the spirit of place and how the landscapes and settlements deeply etched in our minds can be given a voice to speak. How might new voices harness poetry to represent these places anew?
