Small Pleasures Project: Poetry Workshops

Wed. 8 July 2020

Jemima Foxtrot

As part of its online Small Pleasures programme, DINA presents a series of three online poetry workshops with award-winning writer and performer Jemima Foxtrot. Open to all levels of experience.

These 90 minute poetry workshops will each look at ways of writing a different theme in poetry. You'll be reading poetry together and responding to it, engaging in writing exercises and creating new work.

There will be the opportunity, but no pressure, to share your work with the group. You are welcome to sign up to all three workshops or just one or two. These workshops are open to all levels of experience.

Workshop 1: 8th July - Writing joy in poetry

Workshop 2: 15th July - Writing poetry inspired by music

Workshop 3: 22nd July - Writing political poetry
