Poetry reminds us what it is to be human, and more importantly, humane. It creates a haven for those who care. In a mutually supportive atmosphere, poet John Glenday will share existing poems and discuss how to approach writing your own. Using tools and tips, you will write a poem that reflects your experience of caring in a world that often overlooks kindness as a force for change.
This workshop is particularly aimed at care-givers, the care-experienced, those working in the caring industries and indeed anyone keen to explore their relationship with others. No previous experience of writing poetry is necessary. Just bring enthusiasm and a desire to communicate. The finest poetry is often the most simple and direct.
