In this workshop with Raymond Antrobus, learn how the use of image can expand your poems into other, wide-ranging narratives.
Using poems from US/UK as a base we’ll discuss and deconstruct scene transitioning using image and how these moments in narrative poetry can make our poems so much more than a single story.
This is a half-day workshop running 10:30 –13:00 on Wednesday July 26th.

I have always enjoyed writing in verse, but the Courses and workshops I have attended at the Poetry School have taught me about the craft of poetry and the various forms in which it can be most tellingly expressed.
