Event Details

Creative Writing Workshop: Loss 

Are you interested in creative writing? Have you experienced loss? Would you like to learn about how writing poems can help you?  

In this workshop, we will be exploring ways to read, write and talk about loss. Come and join a friendly, supportive group of people – you don’t need to have had any experience of creative writing to attend. Poet and UCLan lecturer Yvonne Reddick will be showing you some poems and giving you ideas to inspire you!         

We’ll talk about grief and bereavement, but also related losses such as losing independence or a job.  

Poetry and Loss Workshop – 1 session (Saturdays) 

For more information about writing loss, Magma poetry magazine is looking for poems about loss until the end of April. Why not take a look at their themes here? https://magmapoetry.com/call-for-submission-magma-75-loss/ 

If you’d like to have work published, you can also submit poems to Asylum mental health magazine: http://asylummagazine.org/
