Here's what's happening this month at Gloucester Rd WI

February 2020

Let’s Get Lyrical, Poetry Workshop

With Beth Calverley from The Poetry Machine

Beth is coming along to facilitate a poetry workshop for us to create a poem together as a whole group and there will also be a chance for some individual poetry writing.

Then Beth will do a talk and performance about how she got into poetry and her journey to set up her poetry enterprise and her community engagement work. Find out more about Beth here:
