Join us for a morning of exploring all that it means and how it feels to be a mother. The everyday joys and tribulations, the conflicts and revelations, the expectations and frustrations, everything all rolled into one. Reknowned Yorkshire poets and authors, Helen Mort, Rachel Bower and Toria Garbutt will share their poetry and personal experiences of being mothers and how they work to find balance in being both poet and Mum.

There will be opportunities to create your own work and connect with others over a brew, or two. Mothers Who Make meet regularly, find out more
