Poetry Workshop with Josephine Lay
We couldn’t be more delighted that Josephine Lay, author and poet has agreed to provide a poetry workshop on the day of the festival. This will be a FREE ticketed event but please book early to avoid disappointment.
“I love the sounds and rhythm of words and so our workshop will reflect this.
Working mainly with free verse we will work on;How our poetry sounds when it is read out loud (performed) or how it looks and sounds to the mind of the reader when it is on the page.We’ll look at the use of; onomatopoeia, alliteration, rhythm and the subtle use of rhyme.
I will bring a few examples to show what I have in mind.
If you are a complete beginner this workshop should ease you gently into thinking about words, how they sound and how to play with them. If you are already a poet then this workshop should refresh your approach to poetry and possibly offer some new ideas. Either way I hope you will enjoy the process.”
