Develop an appreciation for the exotic and take on a deeper engagement with the foreign in your work.
How do we write about distant, beautiful places without sounding politically naïve or patronising? How do we make foreign places complicatedly beautiful? What clichés do poets use to inadvertently render the other as a type or as being passive? One approach to help energise such work requires an appreciation of the exotic. In this course, you will be stimulated by writing exercises to help your work take on a deeper engagement with the foreign.
One-day workshop from 10:30am to 4:30pm on Saturday 20th May.
