Our series of three free poetry workshops
in Hayle, Cornwall, got off to a great start on Saturday (8 September 2018) at Phillack Church. The workshops, led by local author Jenny Alexander
, are creating poetry to be read in November to mark the centenary of the end of World War One.
Phillack Church was a tranquil and inspiring setting for this first session. The war graves in the cemetery outside were a point of inspiration for the work.
The next workshop will be on Saturday 22 September (1030am-4pm) at Phillack Church Hall and the final one on Saturday 6 October, also at Phillack Church Hall at the same time.
Booking is essential: there are only a couple of places left on both of these, so please do email email@example.com if you would like a place.
A selection of poetry created at the workshops will be read at a candlelit vigil at St Elwyn's Church, Hayle, at 7pm on Saturday 10 November 2018 - the day before the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.
This project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
