Workshop - Tuesday 7 January

The first CPS Workshop for 2014 will be at 7pm - 10pm on Tuesday 7 January in the Rosalind Room, upstairs at Parmoor House, Lypiatt Terrace, Cheltenham.

The writing exercise will be led by Sharon Larkin, on the theme of colour in poetry.  There will be an opportunity to read out what we have written, giving and receiving helpful comments to help us firm up our drafts.  After the refreshment break, we will share poems we have already written, exchanging supportive comments to help in the editing process.  Please bring writing materials and about 6 - 8 copies on one or two of your own poems.

£4, reduced to £2 for those who pay the £8 annual subscription, representing a significant saving over the whole of 2014.   New members always welcome.
