Sophie Sparham is a poet and writer from Derby. She has written commissions for BBC Radio 4, The V&A and The People’s History Museum. She co-hosts the night Word Wise which won best spoken word night at the 2019 Saboteur Awards. Her latest collection ‘The Man Who Ate 50,000 Weetabix’ came out in April via Verve Poetry Press.
The Workshop at Artcore’s Reading Room
As part of a new project in partnership with Derby Cathedral, Artcore has invited Sophie Sparham to lead a creative poetry workshop in our new Reading Room in the Artcore Cabin. We will take inspiration from pieces of writing and poetry, to create poems around the themes of hope and peace and write them onto paper doves that will become a part of a large installation at Derby Cathedral.
This workshop will be nice and chilled. No previous writing experience is needed. Novice or expert, come along and have a go.
