FAITH & TIME
A Poetry Workshop with the celebrated Canadian – British Poet
Paul Abdul Wadood Sutherland
About the Workshop:
The essence of the workshop is to inspire the participants to see their capacity to write is always close, just below the surface. The workshop aims to help the emerging writers to hone their observational skills. Its purpose is to give writers confidence that they have something worth saying and that their perceptions are valuable.
About the Workshop leader:
Paul Sutherland was born in Ontario, Canada, in 1947, and arrived in the UK in 1973. He was the founder of Dream Catcher, an international literary journal, and his own writing has appeared in countless anthologies, newspapers and periodicals.
Paul has had published eleven collections of his poetry since 1970, including Seven Earth Odes (Endpapers Press, 2004) and Spires and Minarets (Sunk Island, 2010). His eighth collection, Journeying, was published by Valley Press in October 2012. A monumental New and Selected Poems, including highlights from forty-five years of writing, was launched in September 2016 and relaunched in November 2017.
This monumental new book includes significant pieces from that period, along with new and unpublished works, constituting a personal epic that spans four and a half decades of writing. It charts the poet’s life from his Canadian roots to immigration to the UK, from agnosticism to Christianity to Islam, and from natural wonderment to a greater understanding of the world around us.
He studied at the University of York and a freelance writer in 2004. He lives with his wife in Lincolnshire, UK.
