One-Day Poetry Workshop: 10am until 4pm

Join other like minded writers and poetry lovers to spend the day working with Gillian Clarke, former National Poet of Wales.

Gillian tutors just one poetry masterclass a year at Ty Newydd with Carol Ann Duffy and one with another fine tuned poet.

So this one-day workshop for The Brook is a one-off, unique opportunity, not to be missed.

The morning will begin with a meet-and-greet cup of tea or coffee (biscuits included), followed by a round-the-table workshop to prompt new work. This will be followed by quiet writing time, and a period of sharing and discussion before lunch.

During the afternoon everyone will have time to write, and take turn to have a brief one-to-one with Gillian before all gathering for the final sharing, which is usually celebratory. You will leave with poems, drafts of poems, and ideas to work on in the future.

Places are limited to twelve, so book quickly to avoid disappointment.

You are also invited to stay for the evening reading and Zoology Book Launch and the ticket price is included for workshop attendees.

Lunch will be available to buy at our lovely cafe next door, BySea Coffee, or you are most welcome to bring a packed lunch.  Light refreshments will be available through out the day.
