Expanding Your Perspective


To improve your writing skills and widen your perspective.


Scribbler (Co-Leader)




To improve your writing skills. To re- write and post a poem that is in someone else’s style and therefore develop fresh ideas and a new perspective on your writing and its style. The idea is not to use someones re-write at the end of the workshop and call it your own.

Deep analysis of poetry

Deep analysis of poetry- looking for more than the apparent words.

There is a great deal of resistance to "depth analysis" of poetry (often caused by unfortunate school experiences) however it can provide a great tool for insight in review and critique as well as honing our own skills in the writing of deep, rich, quality verse.

In this workshop each participant will submit a poem which the other participants will firstly attempt to describe/summarise as simply as possible the literal meaning. The comparisons will be revealing.
