Emerging from the Lake at Space to Emerge

On the weekend 13th – 14th of May I’m going to be running a creative writing workshop called ‘Emerging from the Lake’ at the Space to Emerge Woodland Retreat at Fell Foot Wood, near Lake Windermere, in Cumbria.

The inspiration for my workshop came from Charlotte Hussey’s poem ‘The Lake of the Cauldron’, which is a glosa based on the scene in The Second Branch of The Mabonigion where the giant Llasar Llaes Gyfnewid emerges from an otherworldly lake in Ireland with a cauldron on his back.

You can see me reading an excerpt from Charlotte’s poem and introducing my workshop in this video filmed by Jason Smalley (one of the organisers of Space to Emerge) HERE.
