MIND THE GAP: Inscribe POETRY WEEKENDER
Fri, 9 Jun 2017, 17:00 – Sun, 11 Jun 2017, 17:00 BST
Interested in an inspiring, intensive, creative writing long weekend? Working on your poetry? Developing your critical and editing skills? Do you want support to boost the crafting of your poetry?
Attend Inscribe's residential poetry weekend at the recently renovated Debden House, on the edge of Epping Forest! This is a wonderful opportunity to gather with other writers from around the country, who are your creative peers, to spend an intensive two and a half days on your craft.
Our guest tutor SARAH HOWE will offer a workshop thinking about poetry as an art of gaps and implication, where what’s left unspoken is often as powerful as the words themselves. How can we know when we’ve said too much, or not enough? Tuning in to the white space of the page, exercises will offer a chance to think about the force of silences, breaks and turns inside our own poems.
Guest tutor: SARAH HOWE
SARAH HOWE is a British poet, academic and editor. Her first book, Loop of Jade (Chatto & Windus, 2015), won the T.S.
