Catch Your Breath: a poetry workshop (Newton Aycliffe Library, Durham)
Sat 5 October @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm BSTFree
Join poet Christy Ducker for a writing workshop inspired by Life of Breath’s Catch Your Breath exhibition. We will write in response to art, artefacts, and ideas from around the world, thinking about breath and respiratory health in new ways. Expect to play with breath in the poetic line, and let the air into your writing! Suitable for all abilities.
This event is part of Durham County Council’s Durham Book Festival (5 – 13 October) programme, produced by New Writing North, which takes place in Durham city annually in October. Events are held all over Durham City and County Durham.
