Lancashire Dead Good Poets' Society, in association with Left Coast and Arts Council England proudly presents a Community Creative Writing Project to celebrate The Wyre Way.
The project has been set up to help and encourage people around the Wyre to create poetic tributes to the landscapes, characters and places that give the River Wyre its unique quality. Over a series of workshops, combined with short walks, participants will work with published writers to create poetry and prose in their own style.
Workshops will be run by Lancashire Dead Good Poets, Lara Clayton, Shaun Brookes and Adele Robinson with special guests Rachel McGladdery, Norman Hadley and award winning poet Sarah Hymas. All workshops are free to attend.
All writing produced will appear on the Walking on Wyre blog site during this Summer and pieces selected by workshop poets will be used for a short publication. All participants are invited to attend the launch of this publication at public performance events in Blackpool and Wyre in Autumn 2014.
If you cannot come to one of our workshops you can make a contribution to the project by sharing in a few words, your thoughts about Wyre, on postcards available at venues and Wyre libraries. We will publish these on our blog over the coming months.
Please note - an optional short walk is included during each workshop. Suitable footwear essential.
Disabled access and alternative options for People who cannot do the walk. Mobility scooters available at Wyre Estuary Park by email request two weeks in advance .
