A writers’ workshop with Georges Szirtes
This workshop focuses on our response to images as visual sources ranging from paintings and drawings through to photographs and film. How do these touch what Auden called our ‘auditory imagination’ or what Keats called ‘negative capability’ and so become poems rather than thoughts or opinions? Can the images we generate as words, lines, rhythms and forms lead us beyond those? Bring a selection of potential starting images with you and be prepared to share them for the length of the workshop.
Limited to 15 places.
