Forthcoming Workshop: Speaking Song

my tongue is divided into two one side likes to party - Quique Avilés

Do you read your poems in progress aloud? What exactly are you listening out for when you do this? This workshop considers drafting as an oral process and experiments with the rich territories of what Pinsky calls ‘like and unlike’ sounds. We’ll create new poems in response to voice-led prompts and closely read a diverse range of poets. Tune into the technical ways that voice, sound patterning and silence can work together to enliven the poem as a sonic expression.

This is one of a series of two intensive poetry workshops at Newcastle Centre for the Literary Arts. Date/Time: Saturday 30th April 2022, 10am - 3pm Book here.
