Lockdown Town: Free Poetry Workshops

Led by Simon Mole.

Free online workshops, suitable for ages 18+ years

Following on from the successful All Write Together series of online writing workshops during the first lockdown, poet Simon Mole is back!

We're inviting everyone to take part in workshops to explore their poetry skills - suitable for all abilities. At the final Friday session you can contribute to the writing of a community poem Lockdown Town that we've commissioned Simon to write.

The final Lockdown Town poem will be made into film featuring animation by Scott Tyrrell. You can watch last year's All Write Together project final film here.
