Poetry about Sherwood Forest

CREATIVE folk are being asked to submit their poems and stories as part of a creative project about Sherwood Forest.

Poet, artist and performer Dave Wood is calling for contributions for a free broadsheet which will be handed out in October.

Last year, Dave followed an historic route around Sherwood Forest while holding workshops and performances. He started the walk at the end of July and completed the round journey in November.

The finale, is set to take place somewhere in or around Annesley because of the high levels of support Dave says he received from residents and ramblers while he was in the area. As part of the project, he has also planted two trees grown from the Major Oak at Edwinstowe.

To submit stories or poems e-mail davewrite2002@yahoo.com or call 07709 977684. The deadline is the end of August.
