Four days of poetry workshop – bliss
I’ve been lookin.g forward for months to the workshop with Wendy French at le Moulin at Villebaudon, and was not disappointed. I did the writing part at home in the mornings, and reveled in the critiquing afternoons among as varied a group of poets as would be possible to find. It was hard work, and the exercises really stretched us.
It’s such a comforting thing to be with people to whom you don’t have to explain. The evening readings were delightful, and last night even Jock was persuaded to participate, giving an impromptu Cottars’ Saturday Nicht and recitation of Robert Burns poetry. He usually prefers to be well-prepared for such a performance, so I was really proud of how he responded to the request.
