Wednesday 9th September 2020
Are you looking for a creative outlet? Whether you’re a complete beginner or a confident writer looking to take your poetry to the next level, this class will have something for you. Writer, editor and university lecturer, Sinéad Keegan, will set exercises inspired by the archives at and the history of Chawton House and then run an interactive poetry class once a month from August to October. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, share your work, or just sit back, write and listen from the comfort of your own home. Each session will have a set theme and the exercise will go out to participants in advance so you can have a try before the session. During the session, Sinéad will discuss theme-related ideas about poetry and also give you practical tips to incorporate these techniques into your own writing. There is no requirement to speak or share your work in the
sessions although there will be time if you wish to do so.
Session 2: Wednesday 9th September, 5:30 – 6:30pm (BST)
Nature – Whether you’ve been cut off from it, spending more time in it, love it, or are fearful of all
those creepy-crawlies, many of us are thinking about nature, our effect on it, its effect on us and
how we can live better. Wordsworth wandered lonely as a cloud and Dickinson’s twin loves were
poetry and gardening. The connection between poetry and the natural world is deep and rich. In this
session we’ll look at how we can capture nature in a contemporary and meaningful way.
There are limited spaces so you will need to book your place in advance. The cost is £10.00 per session.
