Building Blocks of Poetry with Judy Johnson
Saturday 20th October
$50 members / $72 non members
Just as DNA can build the most wonderfully varied plants, animals and human beings, so the fundamental building blocks of poetry: detail, relationship and universality, can supply the material for every poem we could ever wish to write.
Designed for experienced poets as well as those just starting out, this 3 1/2 hour workshop explores the many ways it is possible to produce a unique and evocative poem. There will be fun and inspiring exercises that investigate various mixes of narrative and lyricism, tips and tricks to enliven your work with vibrant phrases and unusual juxtapositions of words, and an opportunity to workshop your own one page poem with feedback from your tutor and the group.
Tutor Judy Johnson
Judy is an experienced workshop leader and a prize winning poet. She has run this particular workshop before and received much positive feedback on how inspiring and useful the concepts were, even to accomplished poets.
