Poetry

Celebrating curiosity

Monday May 6th - Saturday May 11th 2019

Totleigh Barton

Curiosity may have killed the cat but it is a vital character trait of writers. So how do you take that inquisitiveness and turn it into art? When do you let your imagination run away with you, and at what point do you think about form? Open to all levels of experience, this week will celebrate and stretch a wide range of poetic forms, with a particular focus on looking at international genres, to help you explore ways to bring your unique poetic voice to the page. Come with an open mind, plenty of blank pages and a willingness to go beyond your current practice.
