As part of the Edward Thomas Digital Poetry Festival, Hampshire Poet 2020, Kathryn Bevis, will be leading a nature and poetry-writing workshop online via Zoom.

Whether you’re an experienced poet or a complete beginner keen to explore the wonderful practice of writing poems in response to the living world, you’ll find the prompts and sensory stimulus you need to gather the raw material for your poem, as well as tuition and guidance in how to craft the poem itself.  

Access to an outdoor space, however small (a garden, potted plants on a balcony, or even a window box) would be ideal but it’s not a prerequisite. Come prepared to play!

This workshop is being delivered by Kathryn Bevis: Kathryn Bevis is Hampshire Poet 2020 and an educator with Arts Council England funding at The Writing School Online (www.thewritingschool.co.uk). Her poems have won several recent awards, including first prize in the Poets and Players competition, first prize in the Against the Grain competition, a shortlisting for the Nine Arches Press Primers scheme, and long listings in this year’s Rialto and Live Canon international poetry competitions. Kathryn’s poems have been published and anthologised in print and online by: Nine Arches Press, Parthian Books, Against the Grain Press, Words for The Wild, The Black Bough, and The Fenland Poetry Journal (forthcoming). She is currently working towards her first collection!
