Join former Birmingham Poet Laureate Giovanni ‘Spoz’ Esposito for a gentle walk through the Lickey Hills, followed by a writing workshop. During the walk you’ll be encouraged to use your phone (or digital camera) to capture images that inspire you, which you’ll later craft into poems.

Please dress for the weather and wear suitable footwear. Please bring water.

We’ll be meeting at the Visitor’s Centre at 1.45 and setting off at 2pm.

This is a ‘Pay What You Feel’ event with a suggestion donation of £5. Your donation will help us to continue providing writing for wellbeing courses to underrepresented groups in Worcestershire (with a focus on improving mental health, the LGBTQ+ community and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence).
