"Mark Connors delivered an excellent workshop on 'Writing the Voice' in two of our Bradford libraries. The attendees found his session engaging, informative and inspiring. Mark really knows his stuff – he knows how to express the innermost thoughts and feelings of his characters in an authentic, fully rounded way and he was able to encourage others to do the same regardless of where they were on the writing journey. Mark is an intelligent, generous and encouraging tutor who is passionate about writing and the importance of being able to write and to express oneself."
Dionne Hood, Development Officer - Reading and Stock Bradford Libraries - Publishers Publicity Circle 'Librarian of the Year'
Join us, Mark and Gill, for our Zoom Poetry Workshops. We are both established writing workshop facilitators who have worked with poets at all levels of experience, from beginners to published poets. We run regular sessions from our kitchen table. Our latest groups have been attending these workshops since last summer and we also run writing workshops for Bradford Libraries, The Bowery in Headingley, Leeds, and more recently, Leeds Lit Fest. We have also run workshops for Prole Magazine and Comma Press.
As more of us are self isolating due to the Corona Virus, we are now offering affordable weekly two hour poetry workshops via Zoom. As things are tight for many of us, we are offering workshops at £10 per session in blocks of four (£40 per month), payable in advance via bank transfer.
To sign up, please let us know via Facebook Messenger or email. Places are limited so sign up asap to avoid disappointment.
We look forward to seeing you via Zoom!
"Mark's workshops are so supportive. Mark is a great tutor, who helps inspire and also to nurture confidence in your writing."
"Mark & Gill have a way of creating a space where it's safe to explore possibilities, while also challenging us to move beyond our comfortable limitations."
"Gill's workshop was my introduction to poetry. I had never strung a line of verse together before. She has a great tool box of techniques."
"As someone new to the poetry lark, I've really enjoyed Mark's workshop group and I feel that I have developed quickly in a short time."
