After having three days off from all events and writing, I was really looking forward to this workshop. I had quite an early start (for a Sunday) and a lovely drive across to Shropshire. It is a beautiful motorway-less journey, lanes, greenery and pretty villages. My SATNAV helped me find the right car park and I could see the others waiting at Reception.
I knew all of the course participants apart from Deb and Paul, having met the others at events over the past year or so. I no longer feel nervous about workshops, which is good because they should be a pleasure.
It was a great workshop, lots of writing achieved and a great tour of the farm. I have taken lots of photos and videos and hope to complete a collection of poems from this.
It was great to see the Poetry Fence and Poet’s Hut for real.
Jean Atkin is organising a celebration of the farm poetry and her residency there next month, I hope to go and share some of the poems which get written from this workshop.
