Workshop: ‘Poetry as Protest’ with Matt Sowerby

Kirkby Lonsdale Poetry Festival

Friday 12th August 2022 4pm to 5pm Methodist Church, Kirkby Lonsdale

Percy Shelley said that “poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world.” Join poet and activist Matt Sowerby to learn how to combine poetry with activist theories of change, using real historical examples and practical writing exercises. This is a workshop for those with any level of experience — poets looking to make a real difference to the world and activists looking to add to their toolbox.
