Cath Drake | Dive Into Poetry - Reading & Writing Poetry (Online)

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. The discussions in themselves are rich and life-enhancing. Then, after a short break, we’ll write together inspired by the poems and share our writing. Suitable for UK, Perth & other Aussie timezones. For further information visit:

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.
