Description

New Poetry Voices workshop programme to launch autumn 2016 at Atherstone Library.

Warwickshire Poetry Voices is delighted to be launching a brand new self-guided workshop programme this autumn at Atherstone Library.

This six-month workshop programme is open to all Warwickshire residents (aged 13yrs and above), with the invitation to spend time in a local library discussing, reading and performing a wide range of published poetry. Each month group members will explore the work of one poet whose collection can be found in the library catalogues. Classic and contemporary poets such as Thomas Hardy, Maya Angelou and local West Midlands poet Liz Berry all feature in the upcoming programmes, providing participants with a broad range of poetry to explore. The programme will conclude with an exciting live performance event in the library featuring workshop members.

Workshops will be FREE to attend and will start from November 2016 running until Spring 2017.

Come and meet new people, learn new skills and read, discuss and perform poetry in a relaxed, supportive and friendly environment. No experience necessary.

For further information, please email angelaedwards@warwickshire.gov.uk or call Atherstone Library on 0300 555 8171.

Warwickshire Poetry Voices is a participatory project aimed to provide children, young people and adults living in Warwickshire, with the opportunity to develop performance skills and the confidence to perform a wide range of classic and contemporary poetry. The project is managed by Warwickshire Libraries and is funded by Arts Council England. More info at www.warwickshire.gov.uk/warwickshirepoetryvoices
