Poetry for everyday, Brislington – Creative Writing Workshop.
This creative and fun workshop will look at the poetry of the mundane, thinking through what it means to pay attention to small moments, things that are often left behind, and the intimacies of the world we live in. We will work with familiar objects and places and transform them through art-making, using techniques such as automatic writing, collage, and collective narrative-building.
No previous experience is needed. Open to all ages and abilities.
The workshop is part of the BRIZ programme 2024, and will help create ideas for the upcoming summer issue, with the opportunity to have your work published in the publication. BRIZ is the community newsletter for all things Brislington, to find out more about the printed newsletter please visit: stanneshouse.org/projects/briz.
