Cath Drake | Dive into Poetry Workshops

 Join Cath Drake for a one hour, online, monthly poetry reading group or you can choose the longer reading and writing poetry session monthly. In the first part of the workshop we will tackle a theme each month with an inspiring batch of poems sent in advance. We'll look in depth at the poems, poets and poetic technique with expert guidance.  If you are interested in writing poetry as well, then after a 15mins break we write together and share our writing for 1.5 hours. Each week we will discuss approaches and techniques to writing poems, share our writing and you'll be given an assignment for the following week. This is designed to kick off a poetry writing practice. Cath Drake’s collection The Shaking City (Seren 2020), highly commended in the 2020 Forward Prizes, was described by Philip Gross as ‘a guide to staying clear-eyed, combative and caring in unsettling times.’. It follows Sleeping with Rivers (2014) which won the Seren/Mslexia poetry pamphlet prize and was a Poetry Book Society choice. For further information and to book visit: www.cathdrake.com
