Description: Join Jurassic Coast (UNESCO World Heritage Site) poet-in-residence, Sarah Acton for a gentle morning of creative writing and poetry on the pier. We are taking Purbeck stone as our theme, connecting creativity and writing to the shifting living landscape to reflect on how quarrying and stone shaped lives here, weaving our own memory and imagination with the course of the stoneboats. We’ll see Swanage town and the local landscape from the pier’s-eye-view, working with the outdoor creative process and nature to inspire and stimulate. With readings, prompts and reflection, we will write and share Purbeck stone-inspired words. All levels and abilities welcome. These walking workshops take place outdoors, walking at a slow and gentle pace along the pier with seating and frequent rest stops on route. Please dress for the weather and bring a pencil and paper to write on. You may also like to bring a cushion. If the weather is too wild and woolly to hold onto our paper and pens, we will move indoors and use the classroom. Please let us know you saw us on What's On in Dorset!
