A Morning with Jeff

We enjoyed a productive morning with author and poet Jeff Phelps. He worked us hard and helped us to create a group poem, which will be submitted to the Wenlock Poetry Festival. We also had fun writing poems in the fashion of the game of consequences where we all started with the same first line and then passed it on to our neighbour for the next line and so on until we had several shared poems. How surprising it was to produce seven quite different poems from the same first line. It was a spontaneous effort and you can view the unedited, unpolished results at the Poems link on the right.
