Tricks of the Trade

These are HappenStance online workshops with HappenStance editor Helena Nelson (Nell).

Sorry, both these workshops are now filled. However, if you'd be interested in a future one, please let me know and I'll add your name to a list.

either on
Wednesday 17 February, 2021
10.30 — 12.45 approx.

Saturday 27 February, 2021
14.30 —16.45 approx.

These will be events for 6-9 participants, involving some reading, some talking about poems and their ‘tricks’, and a considerable amount of writing.

You should expect to work quite hard!

You don’t have to read back anything you’ve written, unless you want to.

The workshops are suitable for adults at any stage of reading and writing. No previous experience required, but if you have plenty, it won't stand in your way.

Everyone, from all walks of life, is warmly welcome.

What do you need?

  • A Wifi connection so you can log into Zoom.
  • Writing things (keyboard and/or pen and paper)
  • An open mind
  • A sense of fun
  • A couple of uninterrupted hours

Added extra

You’ll be invited to send in one poem two weeks after the event — preferably something started in (or as a result of) the workshop, but that’s up to you. Nell will give you detailed (private) feedback on this piece, and if it’s helpful, she will come and go with you on it, until it’s ‘finished’ to your satisfaction.

Eventually a set of poems may be shared among the group. Again, this is optional. It will not count as ‘publication’.

The cost for a place in the workshop is £30.00.

If you'd like to reserve a place or get more details, please contact Nell through the contact box on the website, or email her if you already know the address.
