In association with The British Council, and hosted by Sharehaus Refugio, we are delighted to welcome you to a special event with award-winning UK poet Nick Makoha.
In the run up to the 2018 British Council Literature Seminar, Nick will be running a poetry writing workshop for adults on 23. January 2018, 18:30-19:30, followed by an informal reception and a chance to talk with Nick and the other participants. The event is aimed at all poetry lovers who would like to discuss and develop their poetic voice in a safe and stimulating environment.
Nick Makoha’s first full length collection ‘Kingdom of Gravity’ was shortlisted for the Felix Dennis Prize for best first collection (Forward Prizes for Poetry) and he was the 2015 winner of the Brunel University African Poetry Prize. He toured the UK with his solo show My Father & Other Superheroes. His advice to young poets is advice that he has himself received and found helpful: ‘Poetry works best when you serve it daily with reading, writing and conversation. Read what you like, read what you don’t like, read what you know and read what confuses you.’
Join us for an engaging and thought-provoking evening and a chance to flex your poetry writing muscles. No experience necessary.
The workshop is free but places are limited. Registration is obligatory. Please bring a notepad and writing materials with you.
