Mslexia Workshop by Fiona Sampson

The Hay Writers were extremely fortunate to have a session provided by Mslexia this week and our guest facilitator was the acclaimed British writer and poet, Fiona Sampson MBE.

We had a very interesting session on writing poetry and Fiona provided some thought-provoking and challenging exercises. All of us, even those who don’t usually write poetry, had a productive afternoon and we all benefited from her enthusiastic guidance.

IMG_20170717_112521Fiona’s latest poetry collection is ‘The Catch‘ (pub. Random House) and she has also recently published a prose essay ‘Limestone Country‘ (pub. Little Toller).

It was a privilege to have the occasion to work with such a distinguished  poet.

Fiona is this year’s Herefordshire Poet in Residence and will be doing several similar sessions throughout the year. These may be arranged through your local library services.

Thank you once again to Fiona and also to Mslexia for their continued support of women writers and for giving our group this fantastic opportunity.
