Learn to interpret what matters most in your mind, and how to mine this in-built wealth of inspiration
Join this workshop with Yomi Sode to forget traditional solutions to writer’s block – such as reading unimaginable amounts of poetry in the hope that an idea will sprout – and consider instead different methods of connecting with your own subconscious impulses and tapping into your senses for inspiration. In this session we will look at various example poems – including work from Janice N. Harrington, Brian Turner, Marie Howe and Kaveh Akbar – and explore practical ways to equip yourself with these skills via in-class writing exercises. Learn to interpret what matters most in your mind, and how to mine this in-built wealth of inspiration for your writing.
This course is a half-day workshop running 10.30am – 1pm on Saturday 7 April and is part of our Tutor Academy scheme. To find out more about the courses in the Tutor Academy, please see here.
