Publicity material for this event says:

Can you really see the world from another's perspective? Explore empathetic writing with Sarah Howe.

‘How difficult is it for one body to feel the injustice wheeled at another?’ Claudia Rankine’s question points towards the possibilities and the limits of empathy, our capacity to cross the border between ‘self’ and ‘other’. Looking at poems that invite us to try on someone else’s shoes – or question the attempt – we’ll range from questions about ‘lyric’, to mirror neurons, to cultural appropriation, through a mixture of reading, discussion and writing.

One-day workshop from 10:30am to 4:30pm on Saturday 2nd December.
