Writing workshops

November 30th 2019: Poetry Place writing workshop at Beeston Library 11.30 – 1pm.
In this experimental, place-based writing workshop you will try out different ways of creating poetry focused on Beeston. You will draw on a selection of images and written sources from the local history collection, other ‘found’ Beeston-related materials and your own experiences of the town. You will need to bring an open mind, a notebook and a pen. Play with words and share some of your draft poems with other writers from the group in a supportive workshop environment. Booking at: https://tinyurl.com/y4f3z78u  For any other enquiries phone 01623 677 200 or email ask@inspireculture.org.uk
