There are spaces available in my next set of workshops which start on Tuesday, 8th November 2016,  10.30am – 12.30pm at Trowbridge Town Hall.  In a friendly and encouraging class, we’ll read, discuss, and take inspiration from a wide range of poems.  I’ll guide you through a series of interesting and enjoyable writing prompts so that your notebook fills with new ideas for poems. The workshops cost £50 for five sessions.  Book online at Trowbridge Arts or in person at Trowbridge Town Hall. Please get in touch with any questions.  Trowbridge is in west Wiltshire on the border with Somerset.  It’s 20 minutes on the train from Bath and 30 minutes from Bristol.


We’ll take inspiration from a wide range of poetry magazines and books

Feedback from my September – October 2016 workshops at Trowbridge Town Hall:

Just finished Josephine’s last magical course. Great intro to modern poetry. Work at your own pace, Lovely, friendly group. Was inspired to poetry for the first time in decades. Excellent value. Highly recommended.


This is a hugely enjoyable workshop with the inspirational Josephine Corcoran. Highly recommended!


I recommend Josephine’s approach and style and the Town Hall is a great venue.

National Poetry Day, 6th October 2016 – I organised an event ‘Say it with Poem at Trowbridge Town Hall’ and was thrilled that ten local schools, and many poets, artists, and visitors to the Town Hall took part.  I blogged about the day here.  Thank you to everyone who took part.
