‘Write a Poem as Therapy‘ Workshop and Poetry Reading
Date:Saturday 15th September (1:00-3:00)
Venue: Ilkley Library
Booking Advisable (Contact Ilkley Library Directly)
Join me for a poetry workshop where you can explore the benefits of cathartic writing and how to write a poem as therapy. You will leave the workshop with a poem of your own drafted and possibilities for publication.
Our poetry is often written for ourselves and will never see the light of day but sometimes, we realise that as well as helping ourselves, our words can move and inspire others.
This is the essence of my collection ‘Poetry for the Newly Single 40 Something’ (Stairwell Books) which chronicles the escape from a toxic marriage towards living again, also shining a light onto on-line dating experiences. I will read from my collection and talk about the path to publication during the creative writing workshop included in the event.
