An intense workshop with writing exercises led by publisher and poetry editor Katherine Lockton. We will look at some of the most successful poetry written about childhood and children and what makes them so successful.
We will use music, nursery rhymes, toys and music to create and inspire new material. Participants will take part in a poetry show and tell using their favourite childhood objects. These will be used as a basis for engaging with their past child selves.
As part of this we will discuss what a poem is and what it isn’t.
Focusing on writing new material, participants will come away with a body of creative work (2 or 3 first drafts.) A limited number of places are available to ensure the tutor has ample time for each student. All levels welcome.
