The Line Break

Public Group with 118 members

The Line Break is a free monthly podcast about writing poetry, hosted by Ryan Van Winkle and produced by Colin Fraser. During The Line Break, Colin and Ryan will be re-visiting the archives and bringing you some of their favourite interviews and readings with poets from around the world. Blended with the archive recordings will be Ryan’s exclusive new commentary, introducing fresh themes, additional ideas, and creative provocations.

Each episode, Ryan will also offer a few ‘poetry sparks’ for you to try out, opportunities to pause the podcast and work on your own poem-writing assignments. Every episode will offer a multitude of these fun exercises that can be easily fitted into a lunch break or the commute home.

You can use this group to listen to the podcast, upload new work inspired by each episode, and share other related material. And Ryan will be popping his head in and out too, so don’t feel afraid to ask a question!

Public Group with 3 members

Freewritten verse both free and formal! ‘Freewriting’ is writing continuously for a set period of time without regard to spelling, grammar, or topic. It produces raw, often unusable material, but often helps writers overcome blocks of apathy and self-criticism. Use this group to upload your automatic efforts – there’s a good idea in there somewhere…

Transcripts are provided for all Q&As after each event. Details for all upcoming Q&A’s can be found in the group calendar.
