This 3 hour interactive session will explore how writing can help you
reconnect with yourself, tune into your creativity and guide you through
life. Together, in an informal, supportive environment, we’ll explore our

The Poetry Show & Stairwell Books Presents

The Poetry Show  –  1-2pm

The Poetry Show talks about GRANDPARENTS followed by Stairwell Books Presents: Declan Minskip & barriers to writing: how can we surmount these?

The Poetry Show Season Two Episode Two is about our grands: the ones we inherit from our parents, the ones we find, the elders we may eventually become.

After that we have a Stairwell Books Presents discussion about writing, and barriers we may face before we even get started. Two Rivers producer Declan Minskip bravely endures Rose’s questions (eeek) (only kidding. I’m not scary….am I?) with planned input from Emily Drew. Can depression stop creativity dead or can we harness the isolation and introspection of at least a milder depression to tap our thoughts? No one will suggest we just “snap out of it.” Mental health issues will affect most of us at some point in our lives.
