Event description
Cardiff Seren Poetry Festival Writing The Revolution: Workshop by Tishani Doshi

About this Event

What does it mean to be alive at this moment, and what can poetry do to change anything? Ranging from poetry of witness, to poetry of change, to poetry which tries to ‘praise the mutilated world’ – this workshop will offer a variety of prompts from which to springboard into the  revolution. Manifestos, news headlines, celebrity tweets, the conversation around your family’s dining table – everything can and should be used to make a poem. 

Note: Tickets will come off sale one hour before the start of this event. A link will be emailed to attendees by a member of the festival staff before the event begins.
