Focus Walks

The Focus Walks - Bring a pencil and a head full of ideas.

Peddling Poetry along the Tarka Trail North Devon, UK for 2019 lead by Beaford Artist and Poet Technologist Christopher Jelley.

These poetry workshop rides and ambles are free and supported by Beaford Arts, Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund and Paul Hamlyn Foundation. They are creative writing workshops to develop new words responding to the landscape which we will then geo-tag and pin to the Tarka Trail for all to hunt.
