Poetry

Translate your thoughts through language, sound and visuals

Monday June 3rd - Saturday June 8th 2019

Totleigh Barton

This is a practical adventure in ‘intersemiotic translation’. You will explore techniques for harnessing your imagination and transforming your poetic ideas through different modes to create interwoven, possibly multimedia work. Creative prompts will come from a range of writers and artists, including Bosch, Lorca, and Han Kang. Participants will add to this, finding and sharing sources they find evocative. Together we will create a shared bank of images. In the vivid and historical setting of Totleigh Barton, you will explore site-specific and take-away techniques to produce material for your own set of poetic creations by the end of the course.

Single room price: £795
