Next workshop: Saturday 12th September

Meetings of Writers Forum Workshop – New Series are convening online for the duration of the UK’s present COVID-19 (Coronavirus) emergency, and face-to-face workshops are suspended. Physical meetings will begin again once current restrictions on public assembly have been lifted, and when it is judged that gathering in person is sufficiently safe. At present, it seems unlikely that this will happen until after the autumn.

The next online workshop will take place on Saturday 12th September in the usual time-slot of 3.30pm-5.30pm, via a Zoom group. Please feel welcome to join in and share your new poetry with the workshop.

Extraordinary online workshop: Saturday 11th April

Face-to-face meetings of Writers Forum Workshop – New Series are suspended for the duration of the UK’s present COVID-19 (Coronavirus) emergency. It is hoped that the workshop can reconvene once the current restrictions on public assembly have been lifted, though it will then be seeking a new venue.

Instead of a face-to-face meeting on Saturday 11th April, an online meeting will take place in the usual time-slot of 3.30pm-5.30pm. This will be conducted on the workshop’s Facebook page. Poet Peter Philpott, who has kindly set up the meeting, describes how it will work:

Just post on the Writers Forum Workshop – New Series Facebook group page. Post some poems, post a performance (probably not live – if there are other things appearing anything like that might get lost – but if you think not do it!). Post your thoughts about the Resurrection and the Life of Writers Forum Workshop – New Series. How can it carry on? It’s a very visible and public Group – anyone can post.

You can read more of Peter’s thoughts regarding topics for discussion here.

The workshop’s Facebook page is here.
