Whether it's your hometown or you're a first-time visitor, Alton is perfect poem-fuel - from the people you meet to the shops on the High Street, from King's Pond to the Curtis Museum, from grizzly murders to the genteel novels of Jane Austen. In this workshop, we'll use the everyday, the historic, and the geographic to write poems exploring our own personal maps of Alton - or what Alton might be to you.
