It was a wonderful session today, deeply inspiring. Everyone was at the top of their game, and there was such good writing from all the participants.

We looked at Carol Ann Duffy’s poem ‘Prayer‘ (see YouTube) – one of her most moving – to show the way that imagery can be inserted into a poem with surgical precision and be so effective.

Homework is to look at the poem again, and try to create a piece of prose or poetry inspired by it, preferably in the 1st person!

Mungrisdale Writers will be meeting on Thursday 27th October 2016 from 10.30am-1.30pm. Our tutor Angela Locke suggests

‘If you feel like doing any homework – no pressure! – a piece of prose or a poem in the present tense and the 1st person, that is, I and me, which is about or includes a sense – taste, touch, smell, sight, sound, or even a 6th sense?’

Autumn colours are providing us with some wonderful inspiration. Hope to see you there.
