Price: £35 full price
Venue address:
The Poetry School, 81 Lambeth Walk, Lambeth,, London SE11 6DX

Publicity material for this event says:

Explore themes of loneliness, domesticity and the female lived experience with Rachel Long.

We will use Lucia Berlin’s collection of short stories, A Manual for Cleaning Women, as a lens to poets Morgan Parker and Arda Collins. Writing in response to a selection of their poems, we’ll experiment with economy, pace and collage to overlay loneliness with shopping lists, alcoholism with picking up the kids. We’ll use self as character, learn how to let the poem to laugh at itself, in order to achieve a new honesty in our work.

This is a half-day workshop running 14:00 –16:30 on Wednesday July 26th.
