We'll be running an in-person walking, watching, writing "ginko" workshop along the river Avon on Saturday 13th August 2022, from the centre of Chippenham, Wiltshire.
More details here.
In addition to the courses we run, Call of the Page normally holds or takes part in several events around the year. Currently, these are online only. Our most recent event was a talk about "shahai" with the Royal Photographic Society on March 30th 2022. More details here.
In autumn 2019, poets from around the world responded to a call for haiku (and tanka), forms of short Japanese poetry, based on Japanese prints in the collection at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery in England. People sent in more than 800 beautiful, thought-provoking poems from thirty countries worldwide.

In April 2019, we ran a haiku workshop at the wonderful Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre at Slimbridge, Gloucestershire, UK. The event was supported by haiku poets from around the world sending in their poems of wetlands and waterfowl, which we were able to use as examples for the group. More about this event, and photographs, soon!
