(17) Rewilding Poetry:
Sunday 18th April | 10am-12pm | £12
Come prepared to read and to write. In this 2-hour workshop, we’ll look at bringing wildness back into our poetry – in terms of theme and language. We’ll consider new ways to approach landscape and the environment in our poetry – out with the twee and in with the bold! Katrina Naomi is a poet, author of three collections and four pamphlets and a popular workshop leader, based in Cornwall.
The Festival is organising the bookselling in partnership with bookshop.org. There’s an expanded range of Festival titles for each event available from our bookshop.org affiliate shop. Take a look at them here. If you buy from our shop, you are supporting the Festival, the writers, the publishers, and, thanks to the way bookshop.org operates, independent booksellers generally.
