Word Walks

Write, scribble and explore the world around you.

What can you see, smell, hear?

Our surroundings are filled with poems. Join us on a Word Walk to unearth, interrogate and create writing as part of Nottingham Poetry Festival’s series of outdoor workshops inspired by local places, hosted by local writers.

We’re hosting Word Walks in cherished Nottingham locations, where you will be greeted by clipboards and pens from the Nottingham Poetry Festival team, and invited respond to the environment by scribbling and chatting with guidance from professional poets.

Following each Word Walk, the NPF team will collect up your work to create a series of zines for launch at Nottingham Poetry Festival on Saturday 7 May 2022.

Please note anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
