About this event

Join local writer Daniel Kramb for a walk by the beach and a paddle (for those who fancy it), followed by a poetry writing session in Chalkwell Park.

Little Estuaries’ are Haiku-like, but not quite; short estuary-shaped pieces of six lines each, rooted in the landscape and inspired by the coming and the going of the sea – but taking the writer wherever they want to go with it. Fancy making some your own?


Daniel Kramb is the author of the novels Central, From Here and Dark Times; and the poetry booklet Timid Takes. Look at Us is a play collaboration with JJ Bola. He lives in Westcliff-on-Sea.

N.B: participants will wade and walk at their own risk and will need to abide by the social distancing and COVID secure protocols at that time of the event.
