Wye Walk Write: ines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey, On Revisiting the Banks of the Wye during a Tour. July 13, 1798 / 2021
Join poet and publisher Philip Rush on this six-mile (or so) poetry walk along the ups and downs of the Wye Valley, in the footsteps of William and Dorothy Wordsworth and on the date when Wordsworth composed his ‘Lines’. We’ll read the poem in situ and respond in our notebooks to the landscape and to friendship, as Wordsworth does. Our writing focus will be on short forms that draw on Wordsworth’s words. Poets will have the opportunity to share work afterwards and receive written feedback after the walk.
Meet The Old Station café in Tintern 10.30am. Bring a packed lunch.
