You’ll read some wonderful contemporary dialect poems and take part in short, lively writing exercises designed to spark new work. Suitable for writers of all stages who want to seize this fabulous opportunity to work with Liz, a poet ‘ablaze with energy and full of the rich dialect of the West Midlands,’ an ‘incandescent,’ poet of dazzling talent and verve (Guardian).
