Pen to Print

Capture the flavour and experience of Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn through writing.

Workshop Four: Autumn

Often written about by other poets, Autumn brings richness, harvest, changes in colour and changes in outlook. In this session we’ll use exercises looking at other poet’s’ use of colour and description to write about autumn as a season to look forward to. There will be opportunities to share your writing a supportive atmosphere during the session.

Eithne will use a variety of exercises and activities and by the end of the session you may have some personal or descriptive pieces you may wish to develop.

Writing the Seasons is a series of four workshops for writers of poetry or prose, giving the chance to explore how imagery is used in writing can be enriched by engaging with the seasons.

Please note there is a supporting Google Classroom for this course and the direct link to join can be found in confirmation email under the Additional information section.
