Wonderful way to celebrate the day with a workshop run by Malika Booker at the Poetry School. Last week she was on the shortlist for the best single poem for the Forward Prize with her poem ‘Nine Nights’ from a series of poems about Caribbean funerals.
Today’s workshop was inspirational and she was so generous of spirit and happy to share her processes and journey into her own poetry.
Sadly Kathryn Maris who had arranged the visit as part of her advanced poetry course but was indisposed and could not be there. Such a pity they would have made a fantastic double act!
