About the event

Following the 2023 Festival and DPF Poetry Prize, Derby Poetry Festival is excited to launch our 2024 workshop series, bringing together poetry and creative writing talent from across the country.

This year's workshop series is all digital and integrates different types of writing, exploring form, world play and prompts, ideal for established writers and those looking to develop their creative practice.

These two-hour workshops will run monthly alternating between Thursday Evenings and Saturday Mornings, starting on Thursday 22nd February.

Workshops will be capped at 30 participants and we expect high interest, so book now to avoid disappointment.

This workshop will be lead by Liz Berry - Thursday 20th June 2024, 6:30pm - 8:30pm.

Liz Berry is an award-winning poet and author of the critically acclaimed collections Black Country (Chatto, 2014); The Republic of Motherhood (Chatto, 2018); The Dereliction (Hercules Editions, 2021) a collaboration with artist Tom Hicks; and most recently The Home Child (Chatto, 2023), a novel in verse. Liz’s work, described as “a sooty soaring hymn to her native West Midlands” (Guardian), celebrates the landscape, history and dialect of the region. Liz has received the Somerset Maugham Award, Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize and Forward Prizes. Her poem ‘Homing’, a love poem for the language of the Black Country, is part of the GCSE English syllabus.
