Date Recorded Tuesday February 21st 2023, 19:00 - 21:00 GMT
Location Online

We live our lives steeped in pop culture: bingeing the latest boxsets and podcasts, going for walks with our personal soundtracks playing. . . The sheer pervasiveness of pop culture demands our attention as poets, and this Masterclass will show you how Coleridge’s “profound philosopher” may be found anywhere, from Ted Lasso to the cast of Love Island. Taught by Chrissy Williams, the first part will look at how other poets have reflected pop culture in their poems, while the second will share clips and set exercises that invite you to generate your own pop culture-infused work, following Morgan Parker’s maxim: “If I’m going to write poetry, it has to reflect who I am and the things that are making up my world.

"These zoom opportunities are really helping to open my world and keep me inspired to write."

"Arvon at Home creates a model to participate in inspirational tutoring for writers, at a distance. The feeling of attending to my writing life in an excellent fashion, and still having a half-day for my work and caring responsibilities at home, felt like a good balance."
— Masterclass participant
"It was an absolutely brilliant session and very very useful. And it made me realise how much I’ve missed this kind of workshop because of having children and family that I can’t leave. Now we’re all in the same boat the online stuff is truly transformative."
