We are delighted to announce that Staffordshire’s very own Poet Laureate, Mel Wardle Woodend, will be hosting a free online Poetry Workshop at 14.15 on Thursday 18 February via Zoom.

The Earth and Sea Poetry Workshop, with its environmental theme, is specifically aimed at children and is being held as part of the Stafford Green Arts Festival.

Mel, who is a published author and poet, will be known to many from the popular poetry workshops she has held in the Library over recent years. The workshop will last around an hour and there is no charge. This is a great opportunity for children to develop their creative writing skills.
