Poets Anonymous have held a series of workshops at Pepperton uk wholefood restaurant and gallery.
These workshops were organised as '... pairs of sessions with a gap of a week between pairs to allow members to work on their projects. The method of working is quite informal but will concentrate on Sound, Form and Rhythm in turn. There are no prizes, no losers, but there is the risk of seriously enjoying yourself!'
'If you would like to discuss your work, to improve your style or grasp of poetic form, or even if you don't write poetry but would like to, one of our Poetry Workshops might be the very thing you are looking for!' - Brian Dann, Workshop Leader.
