Short Course: Poetry
The art of storytelling in poetry
Perspectives, process, play
Friday October 19th - Sunday October 21st 2018
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.
