Join Our Poetry & Painting Event

May 24 - June 12

🌟🌿NATURE WATCH KENILWORTH🌱🌟
If you wander past the bookshop, you’ll see our latest window display, for The Lost Spells, by Jackie Morris and Robert Macfarlane, from publisher Hamish Hamilton
Inspired by The Lost Spells, we’re inviting you all to write us a poem or create a picture that celebrates the nature on our doorstep.
🌟🌱THERE ARE POSTER-PRIZES TO BE WON, AND STICKERS AND SEED-PACKETS FOR EVERYONE; AND WE’D LIKE TO PUT YOUR WORK ON DISPLAY !🌿🌟
Whether you want to lament the land lost to HS2, or tell us how you enjoy watching squirrels in your local park, we’d love to read your poems. Poems can be any length, any form – from limericks to haiku, acrostic to concrete ‘shape’ poems, or even epic storytelling poems if you wish! And they can rhyme or not, as you please. If you’d prefer to paint than write, then we’d love to see your pictures too. Again, any form – painting, collage, pencil drawing, computer art.
🐌WHATEVER INSPIRES YOU. YOU CHOOSE🐞
When you’ve created your piece, just bring it in to us (or we can take a photocopy if you want to keep the original) and we’ll put it on display in our window. We’ve got stickers and packs of seeds to give away to all who bring in a poem or painting, and we’ve got wonderful posters of paintings by award-winning illustrator of The Lost Words and The Lost Spells, Jackie Morris, to give away as prizes too.
The poetry event will run from 24th May to 12th June, which takes in the full week of Kenilworth Nature Watch.
WE’D LOVE SCHOOLS AND HOME LEARNING GROUPS TO JOIN IN. Or maybe this is something nice to do on a rainy day (of which we seem to be having plenty!) over half term.
