Our world is full of epic, otherworldly moments: clouds shifting, the hunt for new earrings, people changing car tyres. There are thousands of everyday experiences poets can use as inspiration for their writing. In this workshop we’ll sift through the seemingly mundane, searching for the moments we can expand to epic significance. We’ll bring our poetic vision to bear on the ordinary world and look at the way a few poetic tricks can be used to expand a reader’s perception of the worlds we share in our poetry.
This session, delivered via Zoom, is limited to 20 participants.
Tickets cost $30 full/$20 concession and can be booked below.
In addition, the first five participants who book can also choose to send their full poem (up to 20 lines) to Rico for further feedback. This will cost an additional $20. To add on this option, select both your workshop ticket and the ‘ADD personalised feedback’ option — in your confirmation, this will appear as ‘two spaces’.
