Cath Drake | The Climate of Change, Dive into Poetry Reading and Writing Workshop (Online)

The first of two Poetry Workshops led by Cath Drake this Winter. We will take in the Climate of Change Poetry Challenge part 2! We are in a time of great change in the Anthropocene, when humans have radically changed the face of the earth and the living things that rely on it as well as the weather. Explore the perpetuating forces and root causes of the current situation, with essential elements of hope of understanding.  In the first hour we’ll discuss an inspiring themed batch of poems and will look in depth at the poems and poetic techniques with expert guidance. Then, after a short break, we’ll write together inspired by the poems and share our writing. These workshops are designed to help you develop a regular poetry reading and writing practice for those relatively new to poetry – but those who have been writing for a while will also find poems to enjoy and rich poetry prompts. Cost for both sessions £50/One session £27. For further information and to book visit: www.cathdrake.com
