It’s easy to get bogged down in metaphors and punctuation, poetic form and technique. So in this workshop with Helen Mort, we’ll simply be having fun with poetry. Helen will offer poems, prompts and ideas for returning to the joy of writing and reading poetry. You’ll leave the session with some new work and some ideas for how to keep playing with your writing. This workshop is run in partnership with The Poetry Society. After the workshop finishes, we encourage you to go to the Young Poets Takeover and Young Poets Café to hear from your peers and get to meet other young writers. NB This workshop is aimed at 13-19 year olds and will contain material and exercises suitable for that age group. If you’re younger than 13 and want to take part please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to organise parental consent.
