TOAST Workshop with Roger Robinson

Sunday 6th October

The TOAST Workshop is a monthly two hour writing session led by the best poets in the U.K. It is a space to write; to read and to learn new techniques.

In October we welcome poetry legend, Roger Robinson. If you are having trouble getting ideas down and finished, then this is the course for you. Through a process of studying poems and their techniques we will create many first drafts of poems. We will then take those first drafts through an editing process to the finished poem. Perfect for those who haven’t produced poems in a while, but also for those trying to extend their body of work. This rigorous yet fun course will take your writing to the next level, whether you are well published or only just starting out. Working from a diverse range of poems, writing sessions and tutor feedback will be the main focus in this well-structured workshop dedicated to your poetry.

The workshop will be held at The National Centre for Writing, Dragon Hall, 115 King Street. They are fully wheelchair accessible and refreshments will be provided. The main writing activities will be available where possible on the Toast website after the workshop. The workshops are themed but also designed for writers of all levels and experiences to engage with.

If you receive Jobseekers Allowance, Income Support, Working Tax Credit, Universal Credit, Pension Credit, income-related ESA or if your sole source of income is the state retirement pension, you’re eligible for a free ticket to our workshop. We have 5 free tickets per event. To book one please email Please note that you may be required to provide proof of eligibility for our concessions.

Events will engage with challenging material and subject matter which some might find triggering. However, there will always be spaces that participants can go if they need a break at any time.
