Let’s take our sexualities for a walk! Join poet Richard Scott for free queer poetry workshops dealing with journeys, exploration and homo-psychogeography, as he walks from Southwark Park Galleries to Rotherhithe Village, Stave Hill Ecological Park and other evocative sites by the river Thames.

You are welcome to join us on both dates, the format will be similar but you can go on different journeys for each session.

These workshops are open to adults and form part of a wider project concerning the Mayflower to mark and commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower’s journey from Rotherhithe via Plymouth to North America.

Richard Scott was born in London in 1981. His pamphlet ‘Wound (Rialto)’ won the Michael Marks Poetry Award 2016 and his poem ‘crocodile’ won the 2017 Poetry London Competition. ‘Soho’ (2018, Faber & Faber) is his first book.
