Forum poet appointed
Sarah Larkin (née Fordham) has been appointed poet-in-residence for CTE's Forum at the end of this month. She is 'thrilled by this unique opportunity to share and encourage poetry at the Forum' and is very encouraging:
'It is my experience that even people whose relationship to poetry is non-existent or slight, are amazed at what emerges given a little time and encouragement. My deep conviction is that we are all creative because we are made in God's image, and that as we give space to explore our God-given creativity, our connection with our Maker, as well as with each other, is strengthened.'
Sarah will reflect on the Forum in verse and also encourage Forum delegates to write their own poems.
Throughout the Forum delegates will post short poems on Twitter and display them in the Derbyshire Suite.
Sarah will run a drop-in mini poetry workshop in the Marketplace.
Poetry will be part of the final session and closing worship.
