Writing poetry

LONDON SE11: Poetry Vs. Shame

Date: Friday 28 July, 2017
Time: 2:00 PM
Price: £35 full price
Venue address:
The Poetry School, 81 Lambeth Walk, Lambeth,, London SE11 6DX

Publicity material for this event says:

Explore the topic of shame with Richard Scott and consider if poetry might even challenge and defeat shame.

What exactly is shame and can we make poetry from it? Might poetry challenge and defeat shame itself? And might confronting shame turn us into better artists?

These are just some of the questions we will be asking, whilst looking at how poets Daljit Nagra, C. K. Williams, Cavafy and Adrienne Rich, have grappled with shame in their work.

We will also be exploring what shame might mean to you as a writer and how to channel it into your own poetry via close readings and writing exercises.

This is a half-day workshop running 14:00 –16:30 on Friday July 28th.
