Hot on the heels of her ‘Show Us Your Poems’ surgery, current Digital Poet in Residence Kim Moore leads the next in our Open Workshops series…
Reading other people’s poetry is vital to keep our own poems alive and breathing. In this workshop, you are going to be carrying around a poet in your pocket, or more accurately a poem. You are going to carry this poem to work with you, or take it on the school run. You are going to sleep with it next to your bed. You should have it with you when you eat. If you are really keen, you’ll memorise it. You will then explore the different ways you can give your poem its own shadow poem that will keep it company.
Title: ‘Putting A Poet In Your Pocket’
