Description

Brand new Hampshire Poet Laureate 2018, Robyn Bolam, is coming to Portsmouth to share her knowledge and experience of all things poetry! This exciting workshop will see Robyn reveal the creation stories of some of her poems, then share promps and ideas to help you write new poems of your own.

A fantastic opportunity to build on your collection of work, try out a new form of writing or get a helping hand with work-in-progress. Robyn is happy to answer questions both creative and practical about all things poetry from the crafting of writing, to setting up poetry writing groups, to getting your work published. She has had four poetry collections published by Bloodaxe Books and set up the Hampshire Poetry Hub which you're welcome to join.

More about our March hub tutor: Robyn has published four poetry volumes with Bloodaxe Books. Her selected poems, New Wings, was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation and her latest collection, Hyem, appeared in October 2017.

Robyn also led the Ferry Tales project on the Isle of Wight and in Solent ports (National Lottery and ACE Funded). More details of Robyn's poetry and work here: www.robynbolam.com

Your tickets include tea, coffee and cake and a goodie bag. The evening is sponsored by MsLexia Magazine and PHB Ethical Beauty which are providing copies of MsLexia Magazine and some little samples for the goodie bags.

See you in the meeting room at the John Pounds Centre!
