Les Wicks and Andrew Burke
Sunday 7 December 10.00 to 3.30 with a 30 minute break for bring-your-own lunch.
“INTENSE” – poetry workshop with Les Wicks. 5 hours.
One of the country’s leading poetry workshop facilitators will be in Melbourne. This project will consist of two components.
Firstly, participants will send four poems (maximum 30 lines each) to email@example.com 14 days prior to the workshop. The poems with commentary will be distributed to the participants four days prior to the workshop. Participants should bring a copy of the entire commentary document to the workshop.
On the day of the workshop we will work intensively through each participant’s poems building on prior commentary and establishing a dynamic interplay of ideas/insights.
Should they so wish, participants will have a chance to have a piece published in the Internet magazine Australian Poetry Collaboration, which is widely read and archived by the National Library’s Pandora project which preserves significant Australian cultural websites.
This program is designed for people who have previously attended Les Wicks' programs or have a substantive familiarity with workshopping. It is strictly limited to only 6 attendees.
Bookings must be made by 15 November.
