An established author will be the guest speaker during an evening asking whether poetry can help us at life-changing moments.
Fiona Sampson will be speaking at Ledbury Community Hall (HR8 2AE) on Friday, 28th September from 7.30pm with proceeds going to St Michael’s Hospice.
The author, who once penned a book called Creative Writing in Health Care, will be in conversation with Mark Brothers, a fellow poet and Senior Nurse at St Michael’s Hospice, and between them they will give examples of poetry from their own experiences.
Fiona has been in the news recently after publishing a book charting the life of the woman who created Frankenstein.
In Search of Mary Shelley marks the 200th anniversary of Mary penning the gothic work of fiction in 1818.
Fiona is also well-known for her poetry, holding the title of Herefordshire’s Poet in Residence in 2017.
