Occupations & Interruptions is a series of free workshops for carers inspired by the work and life of Victorian poet Christina Rossetti and led by poet Dr Sarah Hesketh and Rossetti expert Dr Dinah Roe. They are organized in collaboration with Carers Oxfordshire. The workshops are designed to be flexible, and you can work with us during online sessions, or offline in your own time. Attend as few or as many sessions as you can! Access is provided to all resources for the duration of the workshops. Poems will be published (with your permission) in a downloadable anthology on the Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre website.
