    About this course

    Join poet Cheryl Moskowitz on this two-day course, discovering Abney Park Cemetery then reconvening to workshop the poems it’s inspired.


    Did you know?

    There is an unexploded Second World War bomb located somewhere in Abney Park.


    In this course

    You will spend the first day of this two-day workshop immersing yourself in the atmosphere of Abney Park Cemetery in Stoke Newington – a Victorian cemetery where public and private, poverty and privilege, life and death, nature and decay all meet.

    Once laid out as an arboretum, Abney Park became a burial ground for Dissenters, the first fully non-denominational cemetery in Europe where anyone could be buried.

    You’ll then have a month to come up with your own original pieces before the second saturday, where you’ll gather at The Poetry School to workshop the poems inspired by your earlier visit.


    Now you can

    • Discover Abney Park Cemetery
    • Write poems inspired by a classic landmark
