Here are some pictures from the writing workshop I went to at Cuckmere Haven. It was beautifully and inspiringly led by the novelist and poet Kay Syrad. Coleridge would have enjoyed walking on the beach and wading through the river and sea with us; we were told that uneven ground suited his muse whereas Wordsworth preferred a straight gravel path. The Coastguard's Cottage where we were based was magical. No wonder it featured in the film of 'Atonement' I have a notebook of phrases and a head full of thoughts that may or may not turn into prose or a poem. For now I am content to absorb memories and impressions of a visionary day.
