Poetry as Autobiography
During this workshop you will look at using autobiography as the starting point for your own poetry. You will look at examples of how the story of the self can be transformed through poetry and how our own lived experiences can be used to create a poem with a wider universal appeal. Come prepared to think about memory, risk, truth, lies, reality and perspective. This workshop is suitable for beginners and more experienced writers.
