Free poetry workshop

poetry workshop

What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon…. Acclaimed local author Jenny Alexander offered a unique two-hour session at the Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro, looking at the searing stories of sacrifice, love and loss presented in our ‘Heart of Conflict’ exhibition.  People created their personal responses to the wartime experiences of the people of Cornwall, through crafting and sharing poems.

The exhibition closes at the end of next week – and it will be sad to take it down! But hopefully poems and short stories created during it will live on after its stay at the Royal Cornwall Museum.
Several elements will be touring: more details in due course.
