Poetry & Parenthood


This writing workshop will explore themes of parenthood, and how we write about parenthood. Through birth, adoption or fostering, the moment of becoming a parent changes you forever, in a way you cannot predict.

From what we gain by becoming parents, to what we lose – this workshop will explore our subjective experiences as mothers and fathers and shape them into verse.

Writers will distil single moments in ‘parent time’, explore how becoming a parent can change, influence, and strengthen our poetic voices, and explore our children’s voices, and how the conversations between us and them can come alive in the work.

There will be sharing and discussion, alongside intensive writing exercises and feedback.
