Writing Your Intuition at Verve Poetry Festival


20 Feb 2022

10.00 - 12.00

Hippodrome Theatre

We’re at Verve Poetry Festival in 2022!

Join FBS Co-Director and WLAG Poetry course lead Jo Flynn for this exclusive workshop Writing Your Intuition, inspired by intuition, meditation and tarot. We’ll be using imagery and poetry to get writing with confidence. No prior experience of meditation tools or tarot is necessary, just come along with an open mind and have a go for a relaxing writing session that might just be the start of a great adventure. It’s the perfect way to get in touch with your creativity before the evening events begin!

Join us the night before for a That’s What We Said special at Verve >>>


Jo Flynn

After winning the Roy Fisher Prize for poetry, endorsed by the Poet Laureate, Jo Flynn’s debut poetry pamphlet Swallowing Sand was published and she’s since been featured at the National Poetry Library in London for short form poetry, shortlisted for the Jane Martin Poetry Prize at Cambridge University, and published by the likes of Dear Damsels, Mookychick, and The Signal House Edition as well as invited to read internationally.

Jo has developed and teaches a poetry course with Write Like A Grrrl and offers editing and feedback on poetry to individual writers. With an MA (Distinction) in Creative Writing and working closely with artists and writers across Manchester with Manchester City of Literature, Jo just hopes to make sense of the world with words. And dogs.
