Ripples of Hope: Jay Bernard 2

September 13, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

For SQ10 poets. There are 2 workshops – one on Friday 10th Sept, one on Monday 13th Sept (both 6pm-7.30pm) and you must attend both.

An opportunity to reflect on and write in response to Article 28 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the right to a free and fair world which states that “everyone is entitled to a social and international order in which the rights and freedoms set forth in the Declaration can be fully realized.”

In the first workshop Jay will lead us in unpicking the article and we will begin to respond to it as poets. In the second workshop we will share and develop our initial responses. You will then have a week to finish your poem for distribution by the Ripples of Hope Festival which takes place in Manchester the following weekend (17th-19th September). All participants who deliver poems will receive a fee of £100.
