Poetry as Memoir
How do you focus in on a moment from your past to capture something of the bigger picture of that time? Or use a treasured object or personal/family photograph to create a poem of startling freshness? In this workshop we’ll explore exercises and techniques to help you locate a memory and shape it into a poem which might well be the start of a longer sequence you’d like to write.
