Life is a constant dance between the ordered and the free-flowing. Writing poetry, too, involves choosing our words to create a piece that incorporates both form and flow. In this workshop we will explore this dynamic.
We will focus particularly on the Saints depicted in the Cathedral Cloister windows, and what it might mean to go about shaping a life in glass and on the page. We will look one or two poetic forms from the most accessible to the more challenging and try our hand at what appeals.
This workshop is suitable for anyone, of whatever level of writing experience, who wants to engage with exploring the writing of poetry in Chester Cathedral’s inspiring surroundings.
