War Poet Workshop

Another quick post, this time for David Beadle, to further publicise this Saturday’s (19th July) exciting ‘Long Goodbye’ workshop with internationally acclaimed poet Suzanne Steele.

This is a special World War I commemorative event: a free card and letter writing workshop, part of “The Long Goodbye” project to be lead by Canadian Official War Artist, and internationally acclaimed poet, Suzanne Steele, who will return to give a Remembrance Lecture at St Michael’s in November (Monday 3rd).

The cards and letters will form part of a display going up at Exeter University on August 4th. Further information on “The Long Goodbye” Project, and the content of workshop is here. http://thelonggoodbye.exeter.ac.uk/

There will be two sessions of the workshop to choose from on Saturday 19th July. The first workshop will be at 10 am at St Michael’s church this Saturday morning.

The second workshop will be part of a barbeque hosted by Lis Robins and Chris Heaven, on the afternoon of the same day between 12 noon and 5 pm, at The Meade, Sanctuary Lane, Woodbury, EX5 1EX.

The workshop in the morning is free, but if you’d like to attend Saturday’s barbeque and do the workshop there, tickets are £10 (£5 children). The barbeque is raising money for a new fridge at St Michael’s, and hopefully a new microwave.
