In November 2016 I took part in National Blog Posting Month (#NaBloPoMo) and #NaNoPoblano  and blogged every day!  You can read a summary of my posts here.

I’m the main contact for Town Hall Poets  (Poetry Society Stanza group in Trowbridge).  We meet on the second Monday of each month.  Our next meeting will be Monday, 12th December, 7pm – 9.30pm at Trowbridge Town Hall when we will have an Open-Mic Night. Bring a poem or two to read to a friendly audience. More details here. You don’t need to be a member of the Poetry Society to join this group, and you don’t need to live in Trowbridge. No booking necessary, just come along on the night, it will be lovely to see you!

I’m an experienced workshop leader – most recently I taught weekly poetry workshops for Trowbridge Arts at Trowbridge Town Hall from September to December 2016. I’m a member of NAWE and have enhanced DBS clearance (and I’ve subscribed for ongoing checks).  I’m particularly interested in running workshops and events in schools and public and community settings.  Please get in touch if you’d like to work with me.  I’m based in Trowbridge but I’m happy to travel.

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. (Ginny)

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

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

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.
