"The Extra Mile": Workshop with Sandra Thibodeaux
We can all become complacent in our approach to writing poetry. This workshop, suitable for both beginners and experienced poets, will encourage participants to go harder and dig deeper.
Although the class will be shaped somewhat by participants’ needs, it is likely the following will be covered: moving from the abstract to the concrete; using nouns and verbs that punch above their weight; ‘the magic if’; economy; titles; and last lines.
The class will be active, with new work created and the odd rug pulled out from beneath a writer’s feet.
Sandra Thibodeaux is a poet and playwright who has recently released her fourth collection of poetry.
From 10:00am-1:00pm, 6 December at Mattie Furphy House, Clare Copse, Swanbourne. Cost: $45, discounted for members of any writers centre to $30. For details and bookings, click here.
