Self is signed up for this, her first poetry workshop EVER. Sort of excited and nervous at the same time.
Jenny Lewis (fabulous poet, her book is Taking Mesopotamia; met her at Hawthornden) organizes and teaches it together with another fabulous poet, Kate Miller.
3 Spaces Left!
Here are particulars:
DISTANCE AND DEFINITION
Saturday, 28 May 2016
10:30 to 4:30
St. Hilda’s College, Oxford
“So much depends, she thought, upon distance: whether people are near us or far from us . . . ” — To the Lighthouse, by Virginia Woolf
Workshop Process: “We’ll explore the perennial dilemma of the observer whose memory also feeds in information about a place or an event: how closely to focus on foreground, what space feels like, how changes in atmosphere and the fall of light heighten the experience of entering and occupying the world presented on the page.”
Workshop Materials: “Bring an example of an over-stuffed poem or notebook in need of a good walk.” (What does this mean? Must be a reference to something uniquely British)
Here’s the link for how to sign up. (Cancellations up to seven days before the event will be fully refunded)
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
