Poetry workshops with local poet

Ever wondered how a poem is written?

One-hour Poetry Workshops with local Welsh poet.

As part of Adult Learners Week 2012, Richard and Hayley from Connecting Learners are hosting two poetry workshops next Tuesday, 15th May, at the Cartrefi Cymru Tremadog office.

The workshops will last one hour and will be lead by the highly-esteemed local poet Rhys Trimble.

You’ll get chance to learn more about poetry in general, as well as learning all about a type of short Japanese poem called the haiku. There’ll be the opportunity to listen to Rhys read some poetry and then write some haikus of your own and receive feedback from Rhys.

The sessions will start at 12pm and 2pm and are completely free for all Cartrefi Cymru staff, service users and their families to attend.

So come and join us for these relaxed and friendly workshops and maybe you’ll discover the hidden writer within you.

A new start

We are delighted to announce that today our new Project Assistant started working for Connecting Learners in Bangor. Hayley Wood comes to us from Bangor University's Skills & Enterprise team and is already contributing her ideas about how we can engage more people in lifelong learning in the 3rd sector in North & Mid Wales. Hayley will be the first point of contact for people wishing to book onto our courses, and with her passion for learning and expertise in literature, will be taking the lead on "informal" literacy learning in the workplace - including our new Monday Lunchtime Book Club.
