‘Love’s austere and lonely offices’: Parents and Parenting

Some of the most powerful poems in the canon have emerged from the relationship between parent/guardian and child,yet no two experiences are the same. How can we make fresh and original poetry out of these primal and unique feelings of love, hate and all shades in between? Using playful and liberating exercises, we’ll explore the subject of parents and parenting from different angles and aim to surprise ourselves. [Jacqueline Saphra]
