At the beginning of the year we make promises to ourselves – ‘this year I am going to spend more time writing and being creative’. Then we get caught up in daily life and at the end of a week or month find we haven’t written anything. Not a line of a poem or even a journal entry.
At the beginning of this year, Kerry Hammerton extended this invitation:
In 2015 I invite you to invest time in yourself and your poetry writing by joining me for a weekend at Temenos in McGregor. During the weekend you will spend one-on-one time with me getting feedback on your poetry, you will have an opportunity to read your poetry (both old and new) to the group (and get feedback from them), you will also be able to generate new material in guided workshops. There will also be optional sitting and walking meditations that you can participate in. You will also have time to explore the gardens at Temenos, walk in the village or simply write.
Here are a few photos taken this weekend…..
