Join Fiona Benson on a foray into poems that seek to capture the realities of rural dwelling. We will work toward poems for our own personal ‘Book of Days’ by mapping out our rural territories. Exploring the overlay of the rhythms of rural life and the interplay of the seasons with our own inner lives, we’ll write poems that journey through these landscapes. You will need the largest piece of plain paper you can find, and some colouring pens / pencils / crayons, as well as your notebook and pen. The uncompromising beauty of Fiona Benson’s poetry has won her many awards and the admiration of readers, this is a wonderful opportunity to work with one of the best poets at work in the UK today.
