A noted writer of fiction and poetry, Caroline has lived in Norfolk for more than ten years. Her new poetry collection, Pepys (a poetic biography of the diarist Samuel Pepys) was published by Hawthorn Press in November 2012. Yes, her poetry collection (Hawthorn Press, 2010) won the award for the best poetry book in the East Anglian Book Awards.
She won the Poetry-next-the-Sea competition in 2011, and in 2012 she was the winner of the Suffolk Poetry Society George Crabbe prize. In July, she will be performing her spoken word piece, Meeting Mister Pepys, as part of North Norfolk’s prestigious annual contemporary art exhibition, Cley14.
The theme of the Connecting Threads workshop will be Reepham’s local footpaths and tracks; their stories and the ways in which people past and present connect with them.
Everyone is welcome to this free two-hour event. Caroline has great experience in running workshops and helping people to create fresh, evocative work, even if they think they “can’t write”. Places are strictly limited to ten participants, so please only book if you can definitely attend.
The Connecting Threads creative writing workshop will be held at a venue in Reepham on Sunday 23 March, 10.30 am for an 11 am start. To book a place, please telephone Imogen or Trevor Ashwin on 01603 870523 or email:
