A mudlark finds moments of surprise in everyday silt, as does a poet. Join Sophie in examining the riverbank. Whether that includes false teeth on the foreshore or a buckle under a rock, you’ll be rewriting ‘river’ and will leave the workshop equipped with writing methods to encourage new perspective. Sophie Dumont is a Bristol-based poet who won the Brian Dempsey Memorial Prize 2021. She became a resident Bristol Boat Poet in 2018, which fed her wonder of water.
