Join poet Jean Atkin and a knowledgeable guide to explore the nooks and crannies of historic Shrewsbury Library, a Grade A listed building dating back in part to the 15th Century.  Guided by Jean, who will provide inventive prompts, you’ll find ways to write a poem or short fiction, drawing on the building’s inspiration.

Jean has published ‘Not Lost Since Last Time’ (Oversteps) and five poetry pamphlets. Her poetry has been commissioned for Radio 4, and featured on ‘Best Scottish Poems’ by the Scottish Poetry Library.  She works as a poet in education, wellbeing and community.  www.jeanatkin.com
