Tightrope’s very own Sandra Kasturi and David Clink are facilitating a poetry workshop to help you ‘get out of the bleary, always-winter-and-never-Christmas-Narnia-under-the-White-Witch, post-holiday doldrums and come join us to write some poetry on the fly until your head explodes!’
This workshop is for anyone at any stage of their writing, from those who’ve been scribbling doggerel on the walls of the bathroom cubicle to those who have already been published.
