Faith in Poetry Discussion Group

September 9, 2019 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
Chester Cathedral Library

How can the language of poetry relate to the journey of faith? And how can we relate to the language of poetry? In a monthly series of discussion groups we will explore these two questions. Each session will introduce an aspect of poetry, followed by reading and discussing some faith-related poems. We will cover a range of poets and approaches, chosen mainly from a Christian perspective. 

The Art of Attention What makes poetry different from other types of writing? Why are many holy texts of the world’s religions found in poetic form?

  • About Julia


    From writing stories for my younger brother, to penning poems for the School Magazine and filling a growing pile of personal journals, the written word has always been part of my life’s journey.

    I started out as an English Teacher and subsequently retrained as a Counsellor. I have counselled in a GP Surgery and worked with various Employee Assistance Schemes and Charitable Trusts alongside seeing private clients.

    Although I have done some freelance journalism and written four non-fiction books, creative writing has become my main focus in recent years.

    My poems have appeared online on sites including Amaryllis, Silver Birch Press, Clear Poetry, Spilling Cocoa Over Martin Amis, Riggwelter and Ink,Sweat and Tears. I have been published in Curlew and Bucks Mill Magazine, and anthologised in Our Hearts Still Sing. My first poetry collection, Chester City Walls, came out in 2015.
