All exciting writing depends on clear awareness, close observation infused with energy and imagination.
Looking at animals has produced some of our most vivid and much-loved examples of poetry and prose. In this day-long workshop we will visit the animal species behind glass in the collection of the Great North Museum to inspire and animate our own writing.
How do we see what we haven't noticed before and find the words to balance wonder and grief at this time of the sixth mass extinction? What happens when you unlock your own inner menagerie on the page?
