The Poetic Experience: A Writing Workshop

when 2 July 2018 - 20 July 2018
language English
duration 3 weeks
credits 4 ECTS

How can meaningful experience translate to memorable poetry? Learn how to apply elements of craft to memory and shape your imagination more powerfully. Poetry is not a members-only club. This course is designed to demystify poetic composition and help you gain confidence and produce new, original work. It introduces you to a wide range of poems and poetic techniques from all over the world via text, sound, video and special guest writers. The course will help you see poetry differently, in terms of how you write and how you read. Even if you are a prose writer at heart, it will allow you to explore a form that will bring poise and new freshness to your paragraphing and storytelling as well as write challenging new poetry. This course is designed to help you see your writing transformed if you’re an experienced or new poet. In summer 2018, Siân Melangell Dafydd wants most to focus on care, playfulness and craft.
