Nature’s Narrative: Using nature connection to unlock your poetry potential.

We will spend time in the woodland, soaking up the atmosphere. Awakening our senses. From this non-judgemental place, we will begin to create poetry. Poems will be created through prompts, simple exercises and play.


Sunday 11th July, 10 am – 3 pm

Ash Poems

Facts and fiction about Ash trees to inspire poetry.

We will spend time with the remaining few Ash trees in Courage Copse. Discuss the myths and folklore, learn about Ash Die-Back and use these as departure points for creating poetry. Poem creation will be a mix of guided exercises and time for personal reflection.


These workshops will be facilitated by Katy Lee, Producer at Courage Copse Creatives CIC. The workshops take place at Courage Copse, a provate woodland in the Taw Valley.  Enjoy the peace and tranquillity and allow your creative ideas to flow. Small group size.
