Event Description

In this workshop on World Poetry Day, we will study poems which explore the idea of 'inheritance' and use these as the inspiration to write about the tangible and intangible gifts handed down to us by our ancestors. To prepare for the workshop please consider any objects, memories or experiences you may have which could form the starting point for a poem.

  • Duration: 60
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (no replay available)
