Two free poetry workshops for 18-30s
As part of our Community Engagement programme, the Charterhouse’s Young Community is excited to be partnering with the Poetry Society to invite audiences between the ages of 18-30 to two free writing workshops.
In this pair of workshops, led by poet Bristol’s City Poet Caleb Parkin, we will be drawing inspiration from the portraits in the Charterhouse’s historic Great Chamber, and we’ll create poems which explore clothing’s potential to empower and separate us. We’ll bring them to life in our writing, as well as uncover the rituals – past, present and future – of the Charterhouse itself. We look forward to welcoming participants with or without previous writing experience. All are welcome, and those not currently based in London should feel very free to join too. The first workshop is at 5.30pm Thursday 21st January, and the second at 5.30pm on Monday 25th January. Book your free place here.
