Words From The Ground

Sunday 4th October 2020 £10 – Advance booking essential: contact Dawn Gorman dawn@dawngorman.co.uk

Poetry workshop with Dawn Gorman

Online from Friday 2nd October 2020 £10 – Advance booking essential: contact Dawn Gorman dawn@dawngorman.co.uk

Online format, with critiquing support.

Explore your own response to landscape, taking inspiration from Andrew Hardwick’s exhilarating landscape paintings in his exhibition Ground at HOURS. The painter uses unconventional materials, as well as paint, to suggest the rawness of the landscape – can we adopt related techniques in our writing?

The two-hour, online workshop will be emailed to you, with links to explore Andrew’s exhibition at HOURS. It will include detailed prompts to inspire you to write two new poems. You will be free to complete it in your own time, and, when you have two drafts, you can submit them to Dawn for a detailed critique.
