Open Workshop: ‘Absent Pronouns’

There’s another free Open Workshop coming your way on CAMPUS. Starting 27th January, Seren poet, Dai George, will lead you through the process of writing pronoun-less poems, removing the ‘I’, ‘me’ and ‘you’ altogether.

Pronouns shape our thinking and determine the type of poem that we might write. For this Open Workshop, you will look at the role pronouns play in your poems, and explore how jettisoning them can create a more objective, less relational kind of poetry.

Open Workshop: ‘Absent Pronouns’

Starts: Monday 27 January 2014

Live chat: Monday 10 February 2014, 7pm
