‘Writing Home’ poetry drop-in @ Open House

Like to play with words? So do we!

Come hang out with our poet-in-residence and have a go at some writing games, techniques and activities – or just curl up with a cup of tea and a book! We will have plenty of resources, materials, and poetry for you to get stuck into so just drop in – no need to register.

The sessions run weekly on Wednesdays from 5 December between 10am and noon – and will carry on into the new year, too.

Spread the word!
