Poetry Workshop


8 October

▌

Workshop description: Set in the beautiful grounds and spaces of Ngununggula, this poetry workshop is designed to help writers of all abilities find ways to connect moments of external inspiration with inner emotion. Writers will be led through ways to use metaphor and speech music to enrich their use of words and language, to shape well-wrought lines, or explore new possibilities in their compositions. Come and take inspiration from the works of Ken Done and Rosie Deacon, or find new meanings in the shapes of trees, the play of Spring light in the afternoon, or the ways we can say more while writing less.
