Nottingham Poetry Festival: Art and poetry workshop
April 27, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Don’t think you can draw but would like to? Not sure how to craft a poem but want to give it a go? Or perhaps you’re looking for a relaxing way to escape from the overwhelm of everyday life? Then this is the workshop for you! Self-taught artist, writer and editor, Teika Bellamy will provide art materials, encouraging words and prompts to get you doodling, drawing and/or creating poetry so that you can come away with an artistic piece that you’re proud of, as well as a useful meditative practice to continue with at home.
Dr Teika Bellamy is the founder and managing editor of Mother’s Milk Books. In 2015, Teika was the recipient of the Women in Publishing’s New Venture Award for pioneering work on behalf of under-represented groups in society; Mother’s Milk Books was also longlisted in the 2016 Saboteur Awards category ‘Most Innovative Publisher’. Teika is a popular speaker who is passionate about the role of independent presses and women authors within the publishing world.
