Oxhey Library hosted a free, one day creative writing workshop drawing on South Oxhey for inspiration. The day covered exercises in creating character; developing story; and writing poetry. You can be a beginner or have some writing experience; they key thing is that you have something imaginative to say about your estate. Your writing from the workshop will also be published on the Our Oxhey website.
Local writer leads the workshop
The workshop was led by playwright and poet Michael Crowley who grew up in South Oxhey in the 60’s and 70’s. Michael’s recently published poetry collection “Close to home” includes some poems about Oxhey.
