Do not miss Zoë Brigley’s workshop on 6th October 2019.
Hosted by Poetry Swindon
Letters to the World: A Poetry Workshop
Writer Lynette Roberts once told her friend, poet Alun Lewis, that on reading his letters, she was almost in love with him. Letters can seduce, entrance, bring sorrow or joy, but they are always intriguing. This workshop asks: what do poems and letters have in common? The group will consider what we might learn from the intimacy and directness of writing a letter, and we will investigate what happens if we address not only people but the things around us that create a fragile, beautiful, and intricate world.
