Drafting Table: performance session

March 26 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

All are welcome to this new poetry writing group, where we will share our emerging poems with each other and provide feedback in a safe and inclusive environment.


Maybe you have been attending the Getting Started sessions and feel ready to edit your work and develop your ideas. Maybe you’re an experienced but unpublished poet who wants to take those next steps in your poetry career. There are no minimum requirements for joining, poets of all abilities and backgrounds can attend, just bring a willingness to receive and provide feedback!


Once a month, we will invite a published poet to join us at Gulp Fiction bookstore. There will be a short public reading of their poems followed by a workshop where attendees can learn more about the creative process, get an insight into what it means to be a poet, and share our work with each other.


This month’s poet is Caitlin Stobie. Caitlin is the author of Thin Slices (Verve Poetry Press) and Abortion Ecologies in Southern African Fiction (Bloomsbury Academic). Her writing has appeared in PN Review, Tears in the Fence, Gutter, Stand and elsewhere, and has been funded by Arts Council England. She is a winner of the Douglas Livingstone Creative Writing Competition and the Heather Drummond Memorial Prize for Poetry. Caitlin is a Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Leeds.


Regular attendance is encouraged, to help us build a trusting and collaborative community. No need to book in advance and attendance is free, just turn up!
