Outer and Inner Landscapes: a workshop with Myra Schneider
Sat 24 June 2017, 14:00 – 17:30 BST
The landscape of the world and locations we live in or know well have a strong influence on our feelings and ideas. We shall look at ways in which we connect ourselves with the outer world as a way into exploring and writing about our inner worlds. There will be time to start developing a poem and optional sharing of work.
The event will be followed by tea and readings from participants (please bring one short poem to share) as well as a reading by Myra Schneider.
2pm to 4pm: Workshop
4pm to 4:30pm: Tea
4:30pm to 5pm: Readings
