About this event

Nottingham Poetry Festival invites you to a creative wander around the grand setting of Newstead Abbey.

The Nottingham Poetry Festival team will be at the Newstead Abbey Cafe from 1pm with clipboards, paper, and pens available, inviting you to respond to the environment creatively by writing, doodling and chatting. We will then enjoy an afternoon stroll, moving across the grounds with our writing utensils in tow.

We welcome everyone to a fun day for beginners and laureates alike. With poetry prompts and helpful advice from our Lead Writer, you will be given a kickstart to writing from your heart in an outdoor space, inspired by what’s around us.

Word Walk will end at the starting point at 3pm, when you will be asked to hand in a page or two of your work. The Nottingham Poetry Festival team will then turn the afternoon’s scribbles into a zine (small publication) as part of a series.

About Word Walk

Word Walk is an outdoor creative writing workshop, part of a wider event series run by Nottingham Poetry Festival. NPF are running a number of Word Walks throughout Nottingham, in different locations and headed by different Lead Writers. Following each Word Walk, the Nottingham Poetry Festival team are working with Dizzy Ink to create a series of zines which will be launched at the 2022 Nottingham Poetry Festival.
