11.00-12.00 Poetry reading by Chris Southgate. Chris will read some of his most important poems on suffering and loss, including 'Coming to Terms' which has been read on Radio 4. In the second half, he will read from a wider selection of work - cities, paintings, gardens, love lost and found.

Speaker information

Christopher Southgate has been a published poet since the 1980s. Along with work on life, love, and his native Dartmoor, he has written a number of poems on suffering and loss that have been of help to many. The most recent of his collections are 'Chasing the Raven' (Shoestring) and 'Rain Falling by the River: new and selected poems of the Spirit' (Canterbury). He has given workshops everywhere from Ways with Words to Columbia University. In his day-job he teaches in the Department of Theology and Religion.  

Programme

A festival of words, celebrating all the amazing poetry submissions, where you can write poetry on the walls (screens), hear a reading by Chris Southgate and get editing help by Sally Flint. If you feel inspired, you can also fill the room with your own words at the “Poetry Corner”.

Guided by Catherine Cartwright (www.catherinecartwright.co.uk) we will explore Self-Compassion through Collage and Zines. Zines are self-made booklets. Collage uses found images and text to create artwork.

For this walk-in workshop Catherine Cartwright will show you how to fold a booklet and we will create collage within its pages, on the theme of self-compassion. This is a gentle, creative opportunity to reflect on what self-compassion means to you.

All are welcome. Especially those who may not consider themselves ‘arty’ or ‘creative’.

Catherine Cartwright is an artist and PhD researcher at Exeter. Her research explores trauma-informed arts practice with vulnerable communities.
