Writing workshop: A glass or an ocean? Like water, poetry takes many forms. In this workshop, we will look at water-themed poems to explore how ideas can be shaped; how words spilt across the page in freewriting can crystalize into moments of clarity; and how, sometimes, the joy in a poem comes from letting the words wash over you. Bring pen, paper and a thirst for creating something fresh and free-flowing.

Presented by Nine Arches Press and the West Midlands Readers’ Network.

In partnership with Birmingham Literature Festival.
