The Spaces Between and Beyond: an Introduction to Poetic Writing with Simon Kindt.

When words no longer work, we turn to poetry. Focusing on metaphor as a foundation for poetic expression, and sound as the foundation of language, this workshop offers participants an opportunity to use accessible writing prompts to generate new work and explore how to create more immersive experiences for readers and audiences.

Learning Outcomes:
You will explore new ways to create poetry and poetic experiences through practical exercises and group discussions in the key areas listed below:
- Use metaphor to create work that moves beyond conventional referential expression
- Learn how important sound is to the musicality of poetic writing and speech
- Investigate how a heightened awareness of sound and other sensory modes can create more immersive experiences for writers and readers
