About the event

Poets with Parkinsons is very pleased to announce a new member of the team.  Emily Chapman is a final year PhD Creative Writing student at Newcastle University and has published short stories, creative and non-fiction.  If you are interested in reading any of her work, please email Keith at

Regarding the workshops, there will be eight units over eight months taking place on the last Friday of the month.  Each workshop will comprise of:

  • Discussion around one established writer
  • A "way in" to writing a poem
  • Discussion of three pieces of submitted work, suggesting how the writer might continue to work on and possibly improve the piece. These will be used on a first come, first seen basis, but if your work is not used in one workshop it will likely be used in a later session.  

All members of Poets with Parkinsons are welcome to sit in on the sessions regardless of whether they have submitted work. 

Emily has kindly given an email address to be used strictly for submission of work only.  The address is:
