2021 Poetry Masterclass One: Activate your Poetry with Dr Dai George

11 February @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Image Description: sepia coloured photo of poet Dai George.

The power of your poetry often comes through the verbs, the actions. Expand your knowledge, trip up your writing habits, refresh your poetic approach and be more conscious of where the action is by working closely with verbs.

Dai George will look at how the verbs you choose and the way you use them can elevate your poetry and help you find fresh approaches to your writing. There’ll be close readings of brilliant poems by Jorie Graham and other contemporary verbal magicians, as well as practical writing exercises to help you play with preciseness and ambiguity, conventional and experimental forms, and connected and fragmentary types of syntax in your poetry.
