'One Hundred Shades of Green'. Literary Society director Fiona Owen introduces Victoria Field.

This writing workshop will explore our relationship to the natural world with a particular emphasis on the beauty and abundance of the month of May. We will read and discuss poems and short pieces of prose to explore how writers have approached questions such as climate change, the land, animals, birds and plant life. We will write in response and practice some close observation. We will also look at how the environment can act as a mirror for human experience and dilemmas. No experience necessary as the workshop will focus on generating new writing rather than critiquing. Please bring a notebook and something to write with.

Victoria Field is a writer and poetry therapist. Her writing includes memoir, poetry and drama and she has been commissioned for BBC Radio 3 and 4. She is a qualified Mentor-Supervisor for the International Federation for Biblio-Poetry Therapy and is passionate about the transformative power of reading and writing, especially in groups. She teaches at Canterbury Christ Church University, Metanoia Institute, Professional Writing Academy and Ty Newydd, National Writers Centre for Wales. She has been writer-in-residence in Truro Cathedral and for the RSPB in Blean Woods in Kent.

A warm welcome to all / Croeso cynnes i bawb.
