Inside an Instapoetry workshop

Me at Instapoetry workshop

Me at Instapoetry workshop

It was my pleasure to lead a poetry workshop on Sunday 3rd March at Newham Poetry House as part of the Newham Word Festival.

We looked at the what, who and how of Instatpoetry - more clearly: what Instapoetry is, who some of the Instapoets are and how to become an Instapoet yourself.

A trusting group of enthusiastic poets followed me on a wild journey of reading, discussion, writing and sharing, and here is some of their work.

First up a beautiful piece written by Gosia Marta Rosicka.

Second up some great work by Calu Lema in the gallery below (click on the image to see the 4 quotes):

And there is more to come! Watch this space!
