Writing Against the Dark – what we ignore will never forgive us.
With so much that is frightening and unknown in our everyday lives, does poetry have a role? In this series of workshops we will look at how poems can challenge, comfort and speak truth. The value of our voices. We will seek inspiration in the everyday, from the planet where we live and our place in the cosmos. From our human experiences, both comforting and troubling. In what we can’t ignore.
The course is designed to be both encouraging and supportive but at the same time to challenge participants to extend their skills. Workshops will involve reading of contemporary poems, writing exercises and prompts, and opportunities for feedback on participants work.
Workshops will take place on Zoom, Tuesday evenings 7.00pm to 9.00pm. Start date 27th September, for 8 weeks. Last workshop 22nd November. Cost £150. Payment by bank transfer or PayPal.
