Sat 07 April: Workshop with Myra Schneider on THE POTENCY OF PLACE is now fully booked. At The Nottage.

IN THIS YEAR OF 2018 we already have two workshops planned (in April and in September) and there may well be more, so keep an eye on the Home page for details!


OUR NOVEMBER 2017 WORKSHOP Corsets and Corridors – a creative exploration of the poetry of Emily Dickinson – was led by Alex Davis, poet and English teacher at Woodbridge School, who gave a fascinating outline of Dickinson’s life and poetry.
The film about the life of Emily Dickinson, ‘A Quiet Passion’, was shown at the William Loveless Hall on 28 November. Poetrywivenhoe’s contribution to the evening was a reading of poems from the workshop.
A review article is to be published in the Spring 2018 number of Wivenhoe News.

Poetrywivenhoe has run a number of successful poetry workshops over the last few years as part of encouraging poetry writing in the community.
These workshops offer a chance for poets to meet and hone their skills with an experienced tutor and poet on hand to offer practical advice and encouragement.

Our first WIVENHOE POETRY WORKSHOP, conducted by Kate Foley, took place at the Royal British Legion in June 2013. Poems from the workshop became the Poetrywivenhoe pamphlet “The Naming of Parts…” (from the poem by Henry Reed).

The Poetry Workshop in February 2014 was mentored by Rebecca Goss and was followed a month later by a critiquing session facilitated by Pam Job from which was crafted the Powiv pamphlet “Hands”.

Poetrywivenhoe presented the third in its series of Poetry Workshops in November 2014, mentored by Judy Gahagan.

In March 2016, Poetrywivenhoe presented a successful Roger Caldwell workshop, ‘HOW A POEM IS MADE‘ at The Nottage Institute.

Our workshop, COUNTRYSIDE AND THE IMAGINATION took place at The Nottage Maritime Institute on 12 November 2016, led by Mike Harwood. Some of the poems produced by participants were read at the showing of Akenfield on 8 February 2017 at The Nottage Institute.
