Poetry and Music have a great deal in common; above all, they are capable of moving us. But how does a poem, which takes us beyond the meaning of the words, actually do this?
On this one-day workshop we will be considering some of the ways in which a poem can be more (or less) musical, and looking at the resources poetry shares with music; sound rhythm phrase-lengths, and the cadence of the poem. Above all, what makes a poem lift off the page, and why do we remember poems that do?
Time will be given to kick start exercises and to new writing.
There are quiet places around the house for working in privacy
Poets of all levels welcome.
Numbers will be limited to 12.
