Sun 22 Sep Poetry Workshop with Clare Shaw


Join festival writer-in-residence Clare Shaw for an outdoor poetry workshop in the historic graveyard of St Michael's and All Angels. Adjacent to the Brontë Parsonage Museum, Haworth churchyard has been in use for over 700 years and is the last resting place of over 40,000 souls – including Charlotte, Emily, and Branwell, who are buried beneath the church. Like those famous siblings, we’ll find inspiration amongst the gravestones, the old trees and the birdsong - and the wild moors beyond. Suitable for new and experienced writers alike.
