Venue: The Tiddy Tent, on Saturday.

Natasha Carthew’s interactive poetry workshop for children aged 8-14 offers the chance to write and illustrate your own poem about a favourite object or an idea that you’ve brought with you. Illustration help will come from Plymouth University illustration students and Litearture Works will tweet it for you and post it online! Natasha will inspire your writing using different techniques and creative activities around rhyme and favourite words.
