Creative Writing on the Pier

When? 26 June 2019
Where? Swanage

  • Creative Writing on the Pier

2. Purbeck Stone
Join Jurassic Coast (UNESCO World Heritage Site) poet-in-residence, Sarah Acton for a gentle morning of creative writing and poetry on the pier. We are taking Purbeck stone as our theme, connecting creativity and writing to the shifting living landscape to reflect on how quarrying and stone shaped lives here, weaving our own memory and imagination with the course of the stoneboats. We’ll see Swanage town and the local landscape from the pier’s-eye-view, working with the outdoor creative process and nature to inspire and stimulate. With readings, prompts and reflection, we will write and share Purbeck stone-inspired words. All levels and abilities welcome.

10.30am-12 pm /Max: 12-20 participants
Booking in Advance/ Meet at entrance to the pier/ end at the café for coffee
