The workshop will take place from 1.30pm-3.30pm with a public reading by George Marsh at 3.30pm which workshop participants would be welcome to stay for.There will be an opportunity for poems written during the workshop to be exhibited during Journeys Festival International Portsmouth, 18– 27 October.
