Poetry Workshops with Emilie Lauren Jones Online now

20 June

1:00pm — 3:30pm

Arts & Crafts

Just as people travel, stories travel too. With a significant increase in the availability of translated poems, the internet and the very human desire to gain an insight into the lives of those whose traditions, cultures and countries of origin differ from our own, it is no wonder that a single poem can now travel for thousands of miles.

This informal and interactive session will introduce you to poets and poems you may not previously have come across, encouraging you to explore new voices and stories. You will also be given the opportunity to have a go at writing a couple of poems of your own.

This session is suitable for anyone who enjoys a bit of creative writing or who would like to have a go at something new. You certainly don’t need to have enjoyed English lessons as school to be part of this, all you need is your imagination.

The workshop will be free to view from 21st June 2020 on Emilie’s YouTube Channel:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrJ4fqe2XOPJo0R8QjaEjfA

or via the Positive Images Festival Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/PIFPoetry/ 

If you or someone you know would benefit from receiving a written copy of the workshop activities then please email us so that this can be arranged. 

Meet new people with an interest in poetry, share your work and learn new techniques for writing your own poems. No previous poetry experience is necessary!

Poetry Workshop with Emilie Lauren Jones - online now

26 July

1:00pm — 3:30pm

Arts & Crafts

Regretfully PIF with the workshop leader Emilie Lauren Jones,  has decided in that in the current situation with Covid 19  to cancel the forthcoming poetry workshop at the Central Library  but you can join Emilie on facebook.

We feel that it would be a good idea to do a live stream of the March workshop from my Facebook page.
We will also post out copies of the session plan to anyone who is unable to access the video via Facebook. Therefore, if you are able to, please join me on the last Sunday of the month at 1PM on my ‘Emilie Lauren Jones Writer’ page -

https://www.facebook.com/EmilieLaurenxx/. 

Emily is  doing it from that page so that we are able to share it with people who may or may not have been to previous sessions. 
We feel it is important that the group continues in whatever form it is able to and that we use this as an opportunity to share sessions with people who may not have seen them before. While we are all looking after our physical health, it is also important that we look after our mental health and we hope that by keeping sessions in place (albeit in a different way) we will encourage people to be part of a group and to use writing to assist with mental well-being at this difficult time. As ever, thank you so much for your continued support and feel free to use this group to
share poetry with each other.

Meet new people with an interest in poetry, share your work and learn new techniques for writing your own poems. No previous poetry experience is necessary! For more information email: [email protected]
