Getting Started With Poetry: “Home”

August 4, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Whether you’ve never written a poem before, have just started to write, or aren’t sure if what you’re writing is poetry, this monthly workshop is a chance to carve out some time for writing.

In each workshop, we’ll read a poem together, and use it as our starting point. We’ll suggest some prompts you could take from the poem, and ideas you might like to borrow.  There will be plenty of time to write, and plenty more prompts if you get stuck. At the end of the session, you’ll be able to share what you’ve written in a supportive environment.

In August’s workshop, we’ll think about ‘home’ – whether it’s a feeling or a place, fixed or in motion. We’ll find ways to form our tangled relationships with home into clear structures and articulations.

All you need to bring is yourself – these workshops are here for you to enjoy writing and build confidence in your voice. The workshop is open to anyone aged 16+.

Tell us you’ll be coming by booking a ticket here.

The Oxford Poetry Library is an accessible space but please do contact us in advance if you have specific requirements. You can email us about this or with any questions about the workshop at oxfordpoetrylibary@gmail.com or fill in the contact form below.
