This creative workshop will consider how we might broaden and extend our idea of ‘place writing’ in poetry and prose. You will think about the idea of travelling-without-leaving-home and consider how we write about what’s close to you, the landscapes you know, how you might find permission to do that, as well as how your thoughts and ideas might ‘travel’ through different genres, the freedoms enabled by form.

Helen Mort is a poet and novelist. Her collections Division Street and No Map Could Show Them are published by Chatto and her third, The Illustrated Woman was published in 2022. Her first work of non-fiction A Line Above The Sky blends nature writing, biography and memoir. She’s a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and teaches at Manchester Metropolitan University.
