About the event
Three poets have been appointed to spend time in three Buckinghamshire Libraries during April and May. Aoife Mannix will be working in Wendover, Desree in Burnham and Simon Mole in Hazlemere. Each will spend time getting to know their host library, its users and the local woodlands. They will then draw inspiration to compose a collection of original poems connected to each place which will be displayed in and around the library during June to coincide with the Jubilee celebrations.
As well as spending time in the library, where users will be able to chat and get to know each poet, they will each be running workshops on writing poetry for local community groups and schools. In Burnham workshops will take place on Saturday 07 and 14 May with the opportunity to perform as part of the Donkey Derby on Saturday 28 May. In Wendover there will be a workshops for families and then adults on Saturday 21 May and in Hazlemere there will be afterschool writing clubs on Monday 09,16 and 23 May.
