What you will do
6 hour workshop
Join this 1-day writing workshop with Next Generation Poet Rebecca Goss. Consider the importance of possessions, investigate the pull of memory and look at the drama in domesticity to build your own 'house of poems'.
In this workshop
What is a home? In her poem 'The History of My Father's House' Vona Groarke wants to discover the year her father's house was built, and remembers 'not by year, but by keepsake and event'.
During this one-day workshop you will look at contemporary poems set in kitchens, bathrooms, sitting rooms, bedrooms and explore the drama in domesticity.
