Black Poets Masterclass: African Poets, Part 2
With Dzifa Benson
The assembling of a poetry pamphlet can take many paths, but to do it well, it needs a level of conscious curation. Join award-winning poet and editor at flipped eye publishing, Nii Ayikwei Parkes, as he guides you through the structuring of a small gathering of poems. You will learn how to tease out narratives and themes, using a range of organisational strategies to build a strong pamphlet. During this enjoyable and illuminating process, you will gain clarity on the core drivers that underpin your writing. Suitable for anyone with a handful of poems that are ready for assembling into a pamphlet.
To make the event as accessible and flexible as possible, all sessions of the day are delivered live via Zoom webinar. You have the choice to attend each session live, which will mean you can contribute via the chatbox, or you can watch the recordings of each session at any time over the course of the following month. Please note, your camera and audio will not be visible/audible, allowing you to relax and take the day at your own pace.
As part of our effort to increase participation in the arts, 50% concessions are available for this course at checkout.
We are committed to making our Arvon at Home programme accessible to as many people as possible.
