    ‘A door opens, a door shuts. In between you have had a glimpse: a garden, a person, a rainstorm, a dragonfly, a heart, a city.’ (Sylvia Plath.) How do we ‘glimpse’ our own lives, as if for the first time? How do we glimpse our family, our daily trudge, ourselves? Experience the thrill of the unknown, in our own backyard? Caroline’s workshop will explore the practice of ‘glimpsing,’ new ways of seeing, and hidden doors. Be prepared to write an almost criminal number of poems in a matter of hours. Book a place here

    A brand new re-twisted version of the classic story, written by Caroline Bird. An angry orphan escapes a grey town on the back of a hurricane. She lands in a mysterious country of tiny people and wicked witches, where the trees carry bazookas, the crows recite slam poetry, and a mouse can blow your head off. In just one day, this little girl revolutionizes an entire nation. She brings freedom, and colour. Her name is DOROTHY. Book tickets here.
