Wednesday 12th August 2020

Venue: Online

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 1: Wednesday 12th August, 5:30 – 6:30pm (BST)
Home – We’ve all had a chance to really get to know our homes lately. What does this really mean though? Where is home? What is home? Jane Austen wrote about feeling ‘at home’ at Chawton House, though today she is often more connected with Bath. What is this feeling and how can we portray it in poetry?

There are limited spaces so you will need to book your place in advance. The cost is £10.00 per session.
