Make It Maldon Free Arts Festival

Make It Maldon is a one-off event in Maldon, Essex, England. It will run from Saturday 29th to Monday 31st August 2015 and is co-ordinated by the amazing Willow Shepstone, as her university placement project for Nottingham Trent University, where she studies product and furniture design.

I will be giving a free reading of my poetry on Saturday 29th August, at 3pm, and leading a free beginners’ poetry workshop on Sunday 30th, from 2-4pm. Both events will be at the beautiful Hayletts Gallery. The beginners poetry workshop is open to all. We’ll be using the fantastic art (in Hayletts Summer Mixed Exhibition) as our inspiration – and you really don’t have to have any experience to participate. I will be very kind and gentle.

Booking essential, by emailing me: rosiesandler@talktalk.net

Please can you share this, if you are UK-based and have friends/family in Essex? Thank you!
