Mondays: 30 April - 28 May
This fun and inspiring creative five week writing course will encourage you to play with language and develop your writing skills. Whether you’re into poetry or prose, you’ll be encouraged to experiment and stretch your imagination with a combination of writing exercises, a little home writing, and sharing ideas as a group alongside your tutor.
During the sessions you will be collaging words and pictures from newspapers and magazines; using old books and turning them inside out to find new meanings; drawing poems out of hats; recycling song lyrics and advertisments, drawing inspiration from the texts in the Cerith Wyn Evans exhibition for even more ideas.

During the Cerith Wyn Evans exhibition, Wendy will also be hosting two FREE Poetry Jukebox sessions. Choose a poem about beauty, light, longing or transience from our online Poem Hunter, and Wendy will perform it live and unrehearsed for you in Gallery 2! Why not bring your favourite poem along and share it? Or just listen and enjoy.
