Brand new poetry course with Katy Evans-Bush starts Monday 20th August for 2 weeks.
The Poem is a Question
Here’s a little something to get those creative juices going before the autumn – over two quick sessions, learn to treat your poem not as the answer to something, but as a question. Keats talked about Negative Capability - the ability to be ‘capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason’. We’ll use readings, discussion, and exercises to explore how to write through what you don’t know, and how to decide what to leave out, as well as put in.
Katy Evans-Bush is the author of Me and the Deadand Egg Printing Explained, with Salt Publishing, and Oscar & Henry with Rack Press. She writes numerous book reviews, essays and articles, and writes the literary blog Baroque in Hackney. She also teaches at The Poetry School in London, and provides online mentoring, tutorials and editing. In November she will be poet-in-residence at this year’s Aldeburgh Poetry Festival.
The course will be delivered in two weekly emails, and there will be a dedicated private area of the forum for discussion of the readings, and sharing of work for the homework exercises. Katy Evans-Bush will be active in the forum to give direct feedback on your work and join in the discussion.
