    Workshop: Poetry Writing

    Saturday 7 October 2017

    Enjoy a wonderful poetry-writing workshop that marks the end of National Poetry Week. The day will be led by poet Phil Bowen (www.philbowen.co.uk), who will be using the theme of gardens as inspiration. Poetry plays an important part in the Swiss Garden’s past, and there are examples of verse inscribed around the landscape, full of meaning and memory for those who placed it there almost 200 years ago. Write your own piece of poetry, inspired by the lovely surroundings of the garden and with guidance from Phil, himself a published poet and scriptwriter who understands perfectly the relationship between poetry and place.

    To include:

    • A guided tour of the garden, making notes that can be used later on in the day during writing activities.
    • Garden poetry readings by Phil Bowen
    • Interactive sessions based on rhyme using Philip Larkin’s poem ‘The Trees’ as a template
    • Practice writing sessions in individual areas of the Swiss Garden, using sensory frameworks such as Seeing, Hearing, Feeling and observation.
    • A final exercise using a garden-related structure to write a piece of poetry of your very own!

     

    Arrival refreshments and lunch is provided – please email events@shuttleworth.org or ring 01767 627933 if you have any dietary requirements.
