Mor Sea Poetry Workshop – 3 hour workshop at the Writer’s Block in Redruth on Tuesday 21st November (2-5pm)


This 3 hour workshop at the Writer’s Block in Redruth on Tuesday 21st November (2-5pm) takes the sea as our starting point and will draw on our own joyful memories and experiences in and around the coastline. A series of exercises will strengthen our creative muscles and get us putting pen to paper together. We will add sensory elements to our poems by using natural objects and visual prompts. Anyone – anyone! – can create poetry and gift it to themselves in their own unique voice. Whether you’ve written poetry before or are simply interested in trying something new, this workshop is open to all. Let’s drift away on an ocean of words…

This poetry workshop is led by Ella Walsworth-Bell, creator of Morvoren sea swimming poetry anthology, and Kate Barden.

Ella Walsworth-Bell is an NHS speech therapist working within children’s mental health services. She took an adult education evening class in creative writing and hasn’t looked back since. Every year, she lives aboard a boat with her family and this reconnects her to nature. She co-ordinated and curated two poetry books about the sea – Morvoren: the poetry of sea swimming and Mordardh: surf poetry. They are her dream-children and she has lived and breathed and drank saltwater since they started. Ella is partnered with the Writer’s Block through Word Space, Literature Works’ annual talent development programme. She placed second in the Perito Prize and has had work published in Paperbound, Morphrog, Leon Literary Review, People’s Friend, Public Sector Poetry.

Along with published poems, she has co-written and performed shows with her company, Blabbermouth, including at the Edinburgh Fringe. She writes and performs spoken word and has just had her first short story published with Cornwall Writers. She sings in an 80s cover band, collects tattoos, swims in the sea and rides pillion on a Harley. Kate’s short stories feature in Cornwall Writers anthologies Secret and Hidden and Beneath and Beyond; she has just published her own poetry book Some things just Shouldn’t.
