Monday 19 to Friday 23 July 2021
There will be a maximum of 10 participants on this workshop.
In these workshops we will read and discuss poems across time and place, poems that move through real and imagined worlds. We’ll examine the importance of emotional and factual truth and why we ought to be careful with what we do in poems to real people, known people. How do poets create atmosphere and details in their poems that are at once specific to their landscape and yet open enough to engage readers from elsewhere. Expect to be introduced or re-introduced to classic, forgotten and contemporary poets. Writing prompts will be give throughout the week and there will be opportunities to share your new and ongoing poems.
