Poetry masterclass : Writing poetry of and from the body with writer Heather Taylor Johnson Other events...
"It is always what is under pressure in us, especially under pressure of concealment – that explodes in poetry." Adrienne Rich

In this workshop writer and editor Heather Taylor Johnson will guide participants on how to nd language for the unspeakable.

Why is poetry the form in which such explosions can take place, and how can poetry’s qualities be harnessed to explode the experience of trauma? What must hold together, and what can fall apart? Heather Taylor Johnson, writer and editor of Shaping the Fractured Self: Poetry of chronic illness and pain, will guide you through ways to find a language for the unspeakable, for conditions kept quiet and experiences communicated in groans and grunts.

This workshop will help you take those experiences and shape them into poetry.

Refreshments will be provided.

Presented as part of the UWA WINTERarts Festival 2017.
Speaker(s) Heather Taylor Johnson (writer and editor of Shaping the Fractured Self)
