Credits: 3

In this workshop we’ll explore how poetry can capture and elucidate the precarity of the world we live in, generating new poems that reimagine language and experience in profound ways. We’ll look and listen for the poetic across a variety of contexts and media, examining how writers build the world of the poem, communicating the ineffable and the everyday. Addressing methods of erasure, decolonisation and memory work, we’ll investigate strategies for gathering ideas, critical study and revising your poems. How can writers promote necessary dialogues while conveying both the importance and fragility of the present moment? Audre Lorde wrote: “Poetry is how we name the nameless. It forms the quality of the light within which we predicate our hopes and dreams toward survival and change.”
