Description

Exhibition:

3x3x3: Three Poets, Three Artists, Three Libraries

Small Grass

Tuesday 6 September to Sunday 9 October

Free

Take three poets, match them up with three artists, and the results are three very different books: Small Grass, a short collection of nature poems written from the viewpoint of grass; The Night Library, a love song to libraries, and Lace, a celebration of lace and the women who made it. Worksop Library Gallery is one of the three library galleries to be hosting work from 3x3x3, with an exhibition and workshops from Small Grass.


Writing Workshop:

3x3x3: Red in Tooth and Claw: Poetry Writing with Jacqueline Gabbitas

Saturday 10 September, 10am – 12pm

How do we write about nature? What happens when we give nature a voice? Join the poet behind Small Grass, Jacqueline Gabbitas, for this practical workshop where you’ll look at examples of nature poetry, and write your own poems through exercises and word games. A fantastic opportunity to work with this prize-winning, Worksop-born poet. Adult workshop.

Jacqueline Gabbitas was born in Worksop, Notts. She is a prize-winning poet and has published three short collections: Mid Lands (Hearing Eye), Earthworks and Small Grass (Stonewood Press). She has read at The Times Oxford Literary Festival and for BBC Radio 3’s The Verb. She is co-editor of literary magazine Brittle Star. www.jacquelinegabbitas.net
