Jean Atkin, BBC Poet for Shropshire, leads a poetry workshop specially for National Poetry Day. This is a workshop, kindly sponsored by Arts Alive, in which you can tell the truth about something that matters to you, or deliver a home truth, or – just possibly – tell a big lie! Jean will provide inventive ways into our tangle of truth and lies, and this will be a creative, friendly and celebratory afternoon.
