National Storytelling Week Poetry Work Shop - Inspired by Dave Ball
Seamus Kelly returns to Oldham Libraries to lead a special workshop during National Storytelling Week, in partnership with Gallery Oldham.
Taking the work by Dave Ball, currently exhibited in the gallery, as its inspiration this poetry workshop will give writers the chance to create some brand new poetry themed around words from the dictionary beginning with A, B and C. The workshop will look at how inspiration can be turned into a plan or outline for a new poem and will take participants through the evolution of the piece. There will be opportunities (for those who want to) share their work during the workshop.
No specialist equipment is required and all writers are welcome from those just starting out to professionals.
