Hello fellow poets,

my name is Irene Lofthouse and I am delighted to have been invited to create some workshop videos to encourage and inspire you to take part in the Saltaire Festival 2020 Poetry Competition.

In this my first video I will introduce you to the competion theme, the rules etc and then release on a daily basis the video workshops I have created for you.

The workshops will be released as follows:

9th June, workshop 1 aimed at children and young people, introducing poetry styles, ABC, acrostic, and repetition.

10th June, workshop 2 aimed at children and young people, introducing poetry styles, narrative (rhyming, freestyle), limericks.

11th June, workshop 3 aimed at children and young people, introducing poetry styles, blank verse and question & answer poems.

12th & 13th June, I will release the videos I am creating for adult poets.

I hope that you enjoy the workshops and we look forward to receiving your entries, remember the closing date is midnight Friday 17th July 2020

Irene
