A poetry workshop for newcomers
With Helen Stockton.
Do you suffer a poetry hangup from your school days? Would you like a better understanding of how poetry works, for yourself, to help others with their studies or possibly even to write? Poetry is a great but often misunderstood art form. We will address the basics: what poetry is and whether it can be a poem if it doesn’t rhyme, together with what meter, rhythm, rhyme and form actually are and how they work. We will look at some common poetic devices and have a go at a simple poem ourselves, all in a friendly, fun and supportive environment .
Wednesday 25th August 7:30-9:30pm
The Hub, Grosvenor & Hilbert Park, TN1 2LN
