Via Gareth Twose:
“Writer’s Forum North is back in business running a Poetry Writing Workshop on Saturday, May 26th. Anyone welcome.
If possible we would like people to bring two things: a poem or poems of their own; & a poem (not their own) they either really love or hate.
As usual will be trying to offer constructive feedback and a few laughs. It would really help if everyone could bring multiple photocopies of their poems, so everyone in the group can read them.
The session will run from 2-4pm . And it’s in top floor at Madlab, Edge Street, in the Northern Quarter.”
