Poetry Workshop

January 29, 2022 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Chester Cathedral
Juila McGuinness

Space is not mere absence. The spaces we inhabit range from connecting to enclosed; sacred, working, commercial or domestic; inner or outer; loose or tight, liminal or even lost. Poetry, too, is a form characterised by its use of space alongside the written word. 

We will focus on the impact that spaces in our environment make on us, and the effects we create on the page with poetic ‘white space.’ There will be opportunity to explore the different spaces embraced within the Cathedral’s walls as well as explore the use of space in our writing.

  • 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.
