Life Tides And Word Links: A Course In Poetry (IXOPO)

13th October 2022 @ 8:00 am - 16th October 2022 @ 5:00 pm

I want to share an approach to poetry
that’s taught me how to play
with rhythm and meaning, following words
and traces of feeling to make new tracks.
Acts of poetry link the tides of my body
and the world with new ways of thinking, moving
across from life to the page, and back

This course will help you to connect with themes and images that need expression and exploration. Learning to condense or distil your inquiry can help with insight and clarity. Working with rhythm and rhyme, off-and-half-rhymes, and with antonyms and synonyms, can break open meaning in new and unexpected ways.

Please bring a thesaurus and a rhyming dictionary if you have one. Dawn will also bring mine to share.

Cost: 3 days accommodation + R350 surcharge
