Monthly Workshops

Louth Poetry & Creative Writing welcomes everyone who wishes to share our interest in poetry and creative writing. 

We encourage anyone, who desires to explore their own creativity through writing and reading to come along to the monthly workshops. 

There is a requested contribution of five pounds for each workshop, the more important investment though is your own time, and your enthusiasm for writing. 

In a friendly and supportive environment creative writing and poetry is written, read, talked about and celebrated. Our group thrives on workshop exercises; working alone or in shared work, fresh outpourings are born and developed - a springboard for future writing. 

Each month we have a new theme to work with; using a variety of inspirations you as a writer are able to react to the theme in your own personal way, as well as pick up on the groups collective thoughts. Everyone is given the opportunity to contribute, whether that is to write, read, or simply talk about the poetry and writing. 

We aim to be non exclusive, to provide access to the world of creative writing for beginners and experienced writers alike. 

Previous workshop outlines are available via this site, they give a flavour of the workshops, although they miss out on the very essence and joy that occurs by bringing together a group of individuals, who each have a passion for writing, among their other varied interests.

From 2018 onwards we ask that all participants bring with them 8 copies of a piece of work either or of their own, or by another writer, who they would like to share with the group as an inspiration.
