'Theory and Practice of Poetry' is a first year module that looks at the historical development of poetic form and at significant writers and poetic works.
On Monday 23rd March at 10am Niall O'Sullivan will give a lecture on contemporary poetic concerns. He will examine how advances in technology and cultural shifts have changed how poetry is written and experienced. The lecture will look at digital poetry, Spoken Word, identity poetry and confessional poetry as well as the controversial claim made by Carol Ann Duffy that "text speak" could be seen as a form of poetry. In his lecture Niall will examine the work of Fred Voss, Rosemary Tonks, Neil Hilborn, Sam Riviere and many others.
English Literature and Creative Writing lectures on March 23rd, 25th and 26th are being opened up for attendance by offer holders as a taste of university study in the School of Media, Culture and Communications.
