Trust the image: how to create and develop fresh and lively imagery for new poems
Saturday, 15th September 2018
With Catherine Smith
A three-hour poetry workshop for people who enjoy writing for themselves or who are new to writing poems and want to find ways to get started. Looking at great examples of published poems and how they use metaphor, simile and extended metaphors, we will discuss how to develop your own ideas using images. There will be exercises and opportunities to read and share your writing with the group. Catherine is a published writer of poetry, fiction and radio drama. She teaches creative writing and mentors individual poets.
