Community Day of Creativity at Aylestone Meadows

Written on Water brings together writers, wildlife experts, artists and members of the community to create a collection of words and pictures celebrating Aylestone Meadows

On September 30, participants can share their Meadows' memories, words and stories with volunteer Word Rangers. There will be activities for everyone to enjoy, including the opportunity to contribute towards one big collaborative poem written on a 'Poet Tree'.

Local poet Graham Norman will be Writer in Residence based at Westcotes Library between 12 and 4pm on the day to inspire and assist anyone wishing to create poetry or prose during the event.

The intention is to publish and display the work produced from all the days' activities in a new Written on Water website and anthology for the whole community to enjoy.

Written on Water is part of the Everybody's Reading community festival which aims to get every child in Leicester reading.  Written on Water is supported by Leicester City Council, Aylestone Meadows Appreciation Society and Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust.
