"The Joys Of Workshopping..."

Joy Winkler was a much enjoyed Cheshire Poet Laureate in 2005 and since then, her work has gone from strength to strength...
This week, she led a writing workshop for 18 Friends of Chester Lit Fest... at the lovely home of a Waverton F(f) riend. Posted by Picasa

WE had 2 hours of pure pleasure...listening to sage advice from Joy, reading poems ( including Carol Ann Duffy's ode to charity shops: " Oxfam"  and a piece from Angela Carter's " Shadow Dance" )
AND of course,  we scribbled our own pieces ...
All this in a wonderful room overlooking lush Cheshire countryside.
