Event Details

A free creative writing workshop looking at poetry from different perspectives

Poetry Inspired by Art

Join us at The Hive for the next in our series of poetry workshops with Verve, where we cross the genres of art and poetry. We will be looking at the process of writing ekphrastic poetry; poems written in response to visual art.

We will work with a number of different images to try different styles of writing and look at ways to get ourselves off the blank page to reflect visual stimuli.

Suitable for writers at all stages of their poetry writing journey. Adults (16+ yrs) only.

What to Bring:
Bring your passion for words, an open heart, and a willingness to explore the world through poetry. Please bring something to write on and something to write with. All other materials will be provided.

The workshop is 2 hours in duration. Please arrive ten minutes before the session as the Hive closes at 3.30 pm and you may not be able to gain access after that.

And if you like poetry, you can return later in the day to attend the Verve Open Door, a free open mic poetry event that takes place at the Hive during the evening – you might even want to perform your poems!
