Water Water everywhere! Poetry Workshop with Cath Drake
AboutExplore the essential element of water – from wetlands, wells, rain, floods, tears… water is ubiquitous, transformative, constantly changing, illusive. It makes up 60% of our bodies. It’s a connector, a life-giver, a place-maker, a symbol of emotion, an agent of danger or rejuvenation – and it deserves reverence.
We’ll immerse in poems about water, the gorgeous environment at the wetlands centre and go with the flow in writing our own pieces about the wonders of water.
