As part of Apple Day at Kingston Environment Centre, on Saturday 4th March, I will be doing this!

Blossom to Fruit: A writing workshop to explore our relationship with fruit and trees, their histories and our memories…

Write about your favourite pear tree, your grandma’s apple pie, be inspired by our local history of orchards and fruit-growing; is there a particular variety of apple you would like to pay homage to? We will explore all these possibilities and more at the start of Kingston Environment Centre’s Apple Day.

£10 per place-  this will be a donation towards raising funds for a leaflet about the Borough’s Apple Story. More about Alison’s fundraising here. This is an important part of our local heritage and I am hoping we can help Alison achieve her aim by having fun writing about our relationships with fruit and trees!

12 places available- please book in advance to secure your place!

Lucy 07859997617 or Alison 07867507086

Time: 10.30-12 midday

Paper Cuts

We stretch for eternity

On hind legs made of jelly

Our brains digested in the belly

Of a gold and rotting beast

 

A definition of riches

A plate of scalding bones

Sucked juices for fresh bitches

We sing in dulcet tones

 

This is the end and we don’t care

This is the end of truth and beauty

This is the end of love and language

 

Shut up- x factor is on
