Short Course: Poetry

Perspectives, process, play

Friday October 19th - Sunday October 21st 2018

Lumb Bank

Boost your writing energy with some playful, gentle challenges and the time to try something new. This weekend course is suitable for writers wanting to jumpstart ideas or strike out in new directions. We’ll experiment with form and making new structures, explore imaginative approaches to writing in ‘other’ voices, and encourage you to extend yourself beyond your usual approaches to poetry.
