'Cole's Books Writing Group Workshop: Poeting the Past'


'Cole's Books Writing Group Workshop: Poeting The Past

This month's workshop will focus on using the past to create poems. Your past, the past lives of others, memories and landmarks will all inspire the creative exercises for this workshop.

This workshop is presented by The Mighty Pen and led by renowned poet Clare Bold.

Clare Bold is a poet who uses her connections to Co. Durham, the Pennines and Oxfordshire to inspire her work. With familial relationships and sharp observations on those around her also providing grist to her poetic mill Clare's writing is poignant, often funny and always entertaining. Whether writing for page or stage or both Clare's work is instantly memorable.

Clare Bold is a Bicester based poet who is a regular reader at events such as Beatnik Boulevard and others.

We look forward to welcoming regular attendees and new faces as we explore 'Poeting the Past' through a series of fun and supportive exercises.

The Workshop will start at 6.30pm and last for 2 hours.

Tickets will be available through the Cole's Books website and are priced at £5.00.
Wine and/or Tea will be served to help cultivate and nurture the 'Poetic Process'
