Cath Drake | Dive into Poetry Workshops

Join Cath Drake for an online, monthly poetry reading and writing group taking place over four sessions. In the first hour of these workshops 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. Then then after a 15mins break we'll write together and share our writing. These workshops are designed to kick start a poetry reading and writing practice for those relatively new to poetry – for beginners to intermediate level. 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:
