Turn the everyday into something special with poetry workshop

Creative writing tutor Sue Burge is to run a poetry workshop with a difference.
Called Found Poetry, the workshop will challenge participants to create poetry using the everyday things they might stumble upon.
Participants will be asked to bring along old newspapers and junk mail, rifle the contents of their bags and do a mini field-trip into the surrounding area to look at street signs, road signs, and even graffiti.
Ms Burge said: “This is a really exciting and stimulating way to create new and original poetry with whatever you stumble upon. There’ll be plenty of exercises to practise different found poetry techniques.
“If you are already a practising poet this is a great way to freshen up your ideas and if you’ve never written a poem before it’s a really enjoyable way in.”
