Indigo Dreams poet, Geraldine Green: Newsletter Autumn/Winter 2018, with details of readings, workshops and courses in 2019

IDP poet Geraldine Green has autumn lined up with plenty of readings, workshops and courses!

September 15th, Scarborough saw her leading a full day workshop for LAPIDUS Scarborough, this was followed by Geraldine reading from her new collection, Passing Through.

September 29th/30th once again she was thrilled to run a full day workshop at Cumbria Wildlife Trust’s Nature Reserve, South Walney. Called ‘Write on the Shore’ participants were welcomed to the full day workshop on Saturday. Accommodation at Coastguard Cottage, 29th/30th, soon became fully booked!

Says Geraldine “ It was an honour to be invited to read at the poetry event ‘When Norman Nicolson met Percy Kelly’, but sadly, it was the same day as ‘Write on the Shore’. Big thanks to event organizer for offering to have someone read my poems on my behalf! I was there in spirit, looking across to Black Combe and Millom, Norman Nicholson’s birthplace.”

Looking ahead:

‘Write on the Farm’ full day workshops: October 20th, November 24th. Booking is through Geraldine.
