Poet and boat-dweller Jo Bell leads this workshop for emerging and established writers, to generate new poems on the theme of water and journeys. The best poets write like no-one but themselves. We will read some of the best new work on canals, then draw on your own ideas and memories of watery places.
Harness the language of canals, waterscapes and boats of all sorts in a series of short exercises aimed at refreshing and stretching your writerly habit. Surprise yourself. Indulge yourself. Tell your story your way, as clean as river water. You don’t need to know anything about canals; you only need a thirst for poetry.
