Poetry Celebration for World River’s Day
Following on from the success of the Parrett’s Women’s Poetry Fiesta, The Women’s Community Forum is marking World River’s Day on 25 September with 4 amazing poetry workshops and an Open Mic event.
Our facilitators will join us from around the world to include their personal experience of the plight of rivers in their locality. This is a hybrid event with participants live at Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre in Taunton and joining us online from around the world.
At a time when environmental and climate considerations are at the forefront of all our minds, this is a series of events which will inform, enrich and move you. The poetry workshops are open to writers at all levels of their development.
