Winning Words writes to spread the word about an exciting on-line workshop with Katy Evans-Bush, poet and writer of the popular Baroque in Hackney Blog (you should read her sharp commentary about the Pussy Riot trial). The workshop begins tomorrow and is available to you regardless of your location. Here's a brief description:
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.
