River Mill Surprises

Join Paul Maddern at his new venture The River Mill, a writers’ retreat in rural South Down, for a ‘surprise’ poetry workshop. 

The workshop will look at poems that succeed (at least in part) because of some element of ‘surprise’ that they contain, and will discuss if ‘surprise’ is an essential ingredient of all good poems. Participants will then engage in writing exercises designed to surprise both the writer and the reader. Twelve participants maximum. Coffee, tea and light refreshments will be provided.

Contact Paul on inforivermill@gmail.com or +44(0)7837691752 for more information.
