Publicity material for this event says:

Explore the condensed and memorable phrases of proverbs with Penelope Shuttle.

Proverbs are found in every language in the world and are as old as time. We are very familiar with those in our own tongue, and perhaps less so with those from other languages. In this workshop we’ll look into what these condensed and memorable phrases have to say to us, and how they open doors into new writing. We will look at poems on the theme, and writing prompts will be supplied. Optional read-back sessions on our writing will be part of the workshop.

This is a half-day workshop running 14:00 –16:30 on Tuesday July 25th.
