Overview

InVerse will connect word and wonder, image and imagination, questions and quests. Yeats famously said: Out of our quarrel with others we make rhetoric; out of our quarrel with ourselves we make poetry. The workshop will use the form and flexibility of poetry to reflect upon our relationships with ourselves and the world that we must negotiate. Participants will be led through introspective discussions, word-associations and examples of classical and experimental poetry. From ballads to shape poems, they will go through a behind-the-scenes journey that will assist with their own writing. They will be guided to develop their poetic voice and also practice fresh ways of expression. The course will also share information related to publishing opportunities, magazines and contests related to poetry.
