Live Session 6th April ~ Billy Collins

Oh I do love seeing you all!

Another great session, some on zoom and others on email.

Our first writing prompt today was

press your ear to the hive

from Introduction to Poetry by from Billy Collins

(click on that link and treat yourself to a read of that - perfect for anyone who finds poetry intimidating!

We managed a second very swift writing session with the  prompt this time coming from
Michael Blackburns' poem called Before That.
I'm afraid I can't find it online and copyright precludes my publishing it here but it's in the
Being Alive anthology (p253) if you have it. The prompt that we used was:

in a pub back home

We did a swift one minute on this one and a quick share - but rich as ever it was.

We have some bits and pieces promised for the Quarantino Diary so please do pop back here to keep an eye on the blog; and we will zoom again on Monday 13th April.
