Creative Writing workshops with Genevieve Carver for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals staff and volunteers
Posted on: 8 October 2021
We are pleased to announce that Sheffield-based poet, writer and performer Genevieve Carver will be leading Creative Writing workshops for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals staff and volunteers starting later this month. The project is part of our Staff Art Club and funded by Sheffield Hospitals Charity and Arts Council England.
Genevieve was selected from over 85 creative writer applicants. Her poetry has been widely published and her first collection, A Beautiful Way to be Crazy, was published by Verve Poetry Press in 2020. She has received a number of literary accolades including the National Poetry Competition, Troubadour International Poetry Prize and White Review Poetry Prize.
Genevieve performs regularly at prestigious events and venues including music festivals, theatres and literature festivals. Since 2016 she has been leading critically-acclaimed gig theatre project Genevieve Carver & The Unsung and has toured two shows nationally combining spoken word, music and theatre, celebrating unsung heroes and marginalized voices.
Genevieve has devised a series of fun, creative and easy online workshops which she will deliver via MS Teams starting Wednesday 20 October. If you are a member of Sheffield Teaching Hospitals staff, you can find out more and book onto as many sessions as you like via our internal Sharepoint site: https://bit.ly/2YC5jxQ
Alternatively, you can contact Mir Jansen, Arts Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, to book sessions via email, and/or to request a Haiku* postcard (to write and send your own poem).
We aim to produce a booklet of the work created to share with staff and patients in 2022.
*A Haiku is traditionally a Japanese poem consisting of three short lines that do not rhyme.
The Arts in Health team relies on the goodwill of our dedicated team of volunteers. We also regularly work with professional artists and musicians on a variety of creative projects across the Trust.
