1st March 2014, Writing from the Heart, creative writing workshop.
Some people believe poetry is something light and fluffy. But we know that much of the very best poetry engages with drama, tragedy, conflict and controversy. How can you create poetry or poetic prose that speaks of things important to you in a powerful way and would work in performance? Join us for examples and exercises to help you towards a piece written from the heart. Work with us and fellow group members to create a tapestry of such pieces. Our starting point is Still Falls the Rain, a seminal poem by Scarborough-born writer Edith Sitwell (1887-1964), an innovative, and sometimes inspiring, poet who deserves rediscovery.
