Poetry workshops start in Hayle, Cornwall

Poetry workshop Phillack Church

Our series of three free poetry workshops in Hayle, Cornwall, got off to a great start on Saturday (8 September 2018) at Phillack Church. The workshops, led by local author Jenny Alexander, are creating poetry to be read in November to mark the centenary of the end of World War One.

Phillack Church was a tranquil and inspiring setting for this first session. The war graves in the cemetery outside were a point of inspiration for the work.

The next workshop will be on Saturday 22 September (1030am-4pm) at Phillack Church Hall and the final one on Saturday 6 October, also at Phillack Church Hall at the same time.

Booking is essential: there are only a couple of places left on both of these, so please do email info@bridging-arts.com if you would like a place.

A selection of poetry created at the workshops will be read at a candlelit vigil at St Elwyn’s Church, Hayle, at 7pm on Saturday 10 November 2018 – the day before the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.

This project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.IMG-1331 Phillack Church
