The Focus Walks – Bring a pencil and a head full of ideas!

The first focus walk will be on the 14th June at 7pm – meet at Contains Art on the East Quay

What is happening?

This June will see the launch of the second Poetry Pin trail along West Somerset’s historic Mineral Line, with the first workshop on the evening of the 14th. Firstly the workshops will provide guidance on a technical basis, showing everyone just how darn simple it is to read and post poetry. Secondly there will be ‘creative elements’ (don’t wince!) sometimes there are simple props and techniques you can use to help you write. These might involve inviting guests to lead walks along the trail to seed our heads with ideas and historical knowledge. Other times this will involve more random elements of word play inspiring you to make links beyond your regular cognitive thoughts.

All said and done, the workshops are basically straightforward walks both around Watchet and along the Mineral Line to Washford (Old Cleeve) reading and pinning words as we go.

Please email and let us know if you, and which of your fifty closest friends are able to join us so that we may get an idea of numbers and plan accordingly. 

Listed below are the dates for all six summer Mineral Line Poetry Pin Workshop Walks.

We look forward to seeing  you on the 14th June for the big go, go, go!

Here is a reminder of a previous workshop walk down to Shurton Bars.
