About the event

Join poet Will Burns this spring and summer for a programme of writing workshops focusing on the impact of our creativity on spaces like OmVed, and of course, the opposite.

This year’s programme takes the shape of a series of five sessions on the last Saturday of the month from April through to August, after which we will announce an autumn programme.

The sessions will involve reacting critically to other poets who have interacted with ideas of ‘gardens’, ’nature’, ‘place’ and the environment while also blending in time spent in and with the unique setting here at OmVed to help shape and share your own reflections with Will’s help.

Please bear in mind no prior experience in poetry or creative writing is necessary to join this Group.
