Poetry workshops, first Saturday of each month, B13

Writing poetry

First Saturday afternoons in Moseley, Birmingham

In 2017, these open poetry workshops facilitated by Chris Fewings will take place from 2pm to 4.30pm on 4 Feb, 4 March, 1 April, 6 May, 3 June, 1 July, 5 Aug, 2 Sep, 7 Oct, 4 Nov, and 2 Dec. Because of pressure on places you need to book in advance by email and pay on the day – the cost is £10. It’s a small friendly group which includes people with considerable experience of writing poetry and some who are just starting out. Each time we have a mix of old and new faces, women and men.

Each session has a different focus but we always spend time savouring some published poems from a variety of authors, and doing short writing activities which are designed to get you thinking in new ways. Some people bring a poem of their own to share. Trying your hand at poetry can also benefit people who specialise in some other form of creative writing such as fiction.

We use a pleasant room at Birmingham Buddhist Centre in Park Road, Moseley, Birmingham B13 8AB, which has tea and coffee facilities and opens onto their garden. (This is not a Buddhist event.) But please get in touch first if you want to come, or if you want to know more about the groups. I look forward to hearing from you!
