Poetry Workshop with the Mining Museum

About the event

Join us to mark the 40th Anniversary year of the Miners’ Strike 1984-85, with one of our exciting poetry workshops.

The programme is organised by National Coal Mining Museum for England in collaboration with notable poetry publisher, The Poetry Business. A Coal Anthology will follow in the autumn, along with poetry readings during 2024-25.

Your poem, crafted in these workshops, has the potential to be chosen for inclusion in the Coal Anthology.
