Poetry is the purest distance between two points. It is an essential part of any writers life and is the backbone to our greatest epics and our most sublime fairytales. You can find it in the lyrics of your main character’s favourite song, buried in the heart of Tolkien’s trilogy, at play in the stories of every culture, real and imagined. But how does one approach a poem, how does one coax it into existence, and then, once we have a poem, what to do with it?
Join three incredible poets Chimedum Ohaegbu, Renee Sarojini Saklikar, and Kevin Spenst in this smart, fun, and instructive discussion designed to make poetry real, approachable, and achievable for you in your work. Moderated by Sean Cranbury.
