Four poets to spark ideas on journeys, new beginnings, identity and belonging
In response to the 400-year anniversary of the Mayflower sailing from the UK, ArtfulScribe, the Southampton-based writer development agency, in partnership with Winchester poetry festival, is offering a weekend of free poetry workshops led by poets who have made their homes in England from countries including Hungary, Nigeria, the Philippines, and Poland. George Szirtes, Theresa Lola, Romalyn Ante and Bohdan Piasecki will explore themes such as journeys, new beginnings, identity and belonging, in a series of ninety-minute Zoom sessions on 14 and 15 November.
A crowd-sourced poetry reading on the theme of ‘Giving Thanks’ is also featured on this weekend of poetry activities. All events are free to attend, although priority access will be given to people from Southampton and SO post-codes. More details
