Increasingly, poetry is being used to promote and sustain health and wellbeing. Reading and reflecting on poems – and writing in response – is a way of connecting with the self and others at a profound level.
Each workshop brings a small group of participants together in an informal, warm and welcoming space.
At the end of the workshops poems are brought together in a beautiful anthology.
The workshops are open access and no previous experience of writing poetry is required.

Andrew Richardson, Canterbury Archaeological Trust, and Dr Lesley Hardy, Christ Church University present Other Times: Other Worlds.
A fascinating talk examining the links between gaming, fantasy, history, imagination and archaeology. Together they will explore whether imagined worlds have anything useful to tell us about our own world or if gaming can help us get closer to the lives of our ancient and medieval ancestors. Whatever your views on these and similar questions please come along and share them.
