Splash into poetry reading and writing sessions in 2023 with Cath Drake.  The most enjoyable way to share and learn poetry is in a regular small group. In the first hour of these workshops, we'll discuss an inspiring batch of poems. We’ll look in depth at the poems and poetic techniques with expert guidance.
