Edward Thomas 100: A Creative Writing Workshop

08/04/2017, 15:00 - 17:00


Venue: Special Collections and Archives, Arts and Social Studies Library, Colum Drive, Cardiff, CF10 3EU

This creative writing workshop is part of ‘Edward Thomas 100’, a series of events to mark the centenary of the poet Edward Thomas, who was killed on the Western Front in April 1917.

Cardiff University holds a remarkable collection of archive material and objects relating to his life and work, including original manuscripts of some of his poems, as well as letters, notebooks and objects, such as the watch which he was wearing when he died (it is thought that the force of the blast actually stopped the mechanism at the time of his death).

You will have a unique opportunity to view items from the collection and be inspired to write your own work in response. There will also be a chance to read work produced during the workshop at our performance event on 21st April.


Free entry, but places are limited so please book by emailing Rachel on carneyr2@cardiff.ac.uk
