Where art meets advertising
On this Studio we will set out on a journey to discover the unapparent links between marketing, advertising and the art of poetry. We will see what Axe and Brautigan or Mentos and Warsan Shire have in common, among many others. Then, we will use the creative techniques found in advertising, and even commercials, as starting points for poetry. What is the message of your poems? How can you express it in a unique manner? How can you disrupt the world around you, or even other poems, with your poems? How do you connect your poems to the world around you? How do you make your poems a part of peoples’ lives? We will explore the answers together.
Studios are three week intensive courses. Reading material will be distributed before the course begins. There are no live chats so they are suitable for both UK & International students.
