Sometimes the quest for meaning can shift the focus away from sound in a poem. In this workshop we will go back to words as the building blocks of poems and explore different ways to approach sound. We will look at examples of aural techniques used by different poets over time. We will develop ways to infuse our writing practice with the weird and the unexpected, and move past familiar and habitual modes.
Limited to 12 participants. To reserve your space contact Kirsten Le Harivel at email@example.com.
