Coming Soon to a Computer Near You
Until it is considered safe to meet for real once again our monthly meetings will continue online, via zoom.
Thursday 11 March 2021 at 7:30pm - via Zoom
Poets, and other writers, have always evoked places - real, imagined, earthly, extraordinary....and there's a rich imaginative seam to be tapped in our own memories of places, and in places we have never been, but can imagine. Places aren't just a setting or a backdrop 'where action happens' - they can be imagined as 'characters' in their own right, with their own agendas; as Julie Burchill once said, 'Brighton is a place constantly in the process of helping the police with its enquiries.'
In this workshop, we'll look at some examples of poems evoking places and spaces (exterior and interior) and, through free-writing and other writing games/techniques, we'll generate drafts of our own poems. Bring an open mind - no actual travel documents/passport needed.
Stay safe and keep writing.
