Workshop: Poetry masterclass with Sarah Holland-Batt

On 3 June, Sarah Holland-Batt facilitated a workshop in the tropical grounds of the Cairns Botanic Gardens. She guided participants in writing poetry inspired by plants, flowers, gardens, and the environment.

Through a blend of practical exercises and editorial feedback and suggestions in a supportive setting, participants wrote poetry that is attuned to the natural world and their place within it, gaining an appreciation of poetic techniques and forms.
