Poetry Courses For People Who Don’t Do Poetry (And Those Who Do)

This autumn the CWU are running a series of 8 online writing and performance workshops. The workshops are free and open to all members. They are delivered by the critically acclaimed Poets, Prattlers and Pandemonialists and are designed to be both entertaining and instructive.
Please share widely to make sure no-one misses out.
The first workshop runs from 5-7pm on 17th September.
