Creative Writing Workshop: Dreams, Riddles, Charms and Visions - Poetry of the Middle Ages
Join two acclaimed poets and teachers, Adrian Blamires (lecturer in English literature at Reading University) and Lesley Saunders (www.lesleysaunders.org.uk) for a workshop exploring some of the poetry of the Middle Ages, and how – in the words of poet Eavan Boland – it ‘now seems urgent, contemporary and necessary’.
Be inspired by the dream-worlds, riddles, charms and romance of some well-known and lesser-known poets, and take part in some semi-structured exercises to develop your thoughts and ideas. There will be plenty of time to compose something of your own. Bring something to write on and with.
