Lockdown Town: Free Poetry Workshops

Led by Simon Mole.

Free online workshops, suitable for ages 18+ years

Following on from the successful All Write Together series of online writing workshops during the first lockdown, poet Simon Mole is back!

We’re inviting everyone to take part in workshops to explore their poetry skills – suitable for all abilities. At the final Friday session you can contribute to the writing of a community poem Lockdown Town that we’ve commissioned Simon to write.

The final Lockdown Town poem will be made into film featuring animation by Scott Tyrrell. You can watch last year’s All Write Together project final film here.

Book to get involved in one, two or all of these free sessions – more details can be found below.


Write a Poem by Playing a Game – Tues 2 Feb

Join professional poet Simon Mole for an inspiring writing workshop where seeing things differently is the key. The session will begin with some fun (and quite silly) games before Simon guides participants through a step by step exercise to write a poem of their own.


Rotten Bottom – Thur 4 Feb

Which of these is NOT an actual real life place name?

Blabberhouses, Middle Mulk, Queen Camel.

Join professional poet Simon Mole for a live online writing workshop exploring place. The session will begin with some fun (and quite silly) games before Simon guides participants through a step by step exercise to write a poem of their own.

PS – It was Middle Mulk.


Lockdown Town – Fri 5 Feb

Professional poet Simon Mole (and Maidenhead local) has been commissioned to write a poem with and for the local community. All he has so far is a title, Lockdown Town. All he needs right now is your help.

This live online workshop will begin with some fun (and quite silly) games before Simon works with the group to generate material for the as yet unfinished (or begun) masterpiece.

Bards of Berkshire! Poetry People! Lyrical Locals! From absolute beginners to experienced wordsmiths, this is for you!

Have a pen and paper handy during the workshop.
