We are excited to be included in the first women-centered festival in Manchester, Sapphormation. Suitable for women who love women* we hope to provide a workshop that is inspirational for the pen and the head. Come along to be involved at Sandbar Saturday 3rd November, 16.00-18.00.
Official festival bio:
In the relaxed atmosphere of Sandbar come and explore your poetic side. A mixture of technique and free writing, this workshop will start an exploration of your voice. Looking to read and respond to a variety of Lesbian poets such as Marilyn Hacker, Elizabeth Bishop, Adrienne Rich and of course Sappho herself. Utilising the techniques of these fabulous female poets to get the pen moving, Stirred poets Anna Percy and Rebecca Audra Smith will provide a stimulating and informative writing workshop.
Cost: Although free we would strongly urge you to make a donation to help Stirred poetry continue.

*Includes trans women who identify as women.
