100 Differences Between Poetry and Prose with Peter Sirr - Amergin Solstice Poetry Gathering

Deadline: 21 Jun 2020

What makes a poem, and is it different from the stuff that goes all the way to the other side of the page? This workshop with Peter Sirr as part of June's Amergin Solstice Poetry Gathering, steals its title from a poem by the Scottish poet Tom Leonard. It will explore the elements that make poetry an effective medium and encourage participants to migrate to the zone where poetry, as opposed to prose, is possible. The group will workshop participants’ own poems in a supportive and positive atmosphere and will also be looking at a range of contemporary poems of many different types to gain an understanding of the range of possible approaches to poetry.
