This is a workshop and forum on the status of religious poetry past, present and future. You do not need to believe in anything to take part!
Has the past overwhelmed the topic? Or is diversity and the changing nature of society demanding a place in the here and now? How might that change?
What works? What doesn’t? What are the ‘greats’ of the genre?
This will be a mixture of workshop and forum – participants’ views will be most welcome.
