Commercial: Sonnet workshop with Katy Evans-Bush
Quick! Quick! The esteemed Katy Evans-Bush, she of Baroque in Hackney fame, is hosting a workshop on sonnets at the Poetry School on Saturday 25 June. She writes:
How stretchy is a sonnet? For 700 years poets have been reshaping this form to fit their needs, and in its many shapes it is still recognisably a sonnet. This workshop will look at traditional, contemporary and experimental sonnets to see what makes a sonnet a sonnet, and what its possibilities are for poets now. Can we make it new? Do we need to?
There will be reading, discussion and some writing - so you should go home with something to develop. You can benefit from this course whatever stage your poetry is at, if you are comfortable with the basics, have written sonnets and want to learn more about how to make the sonnet your own.
Now, I love a sonnet, so I'll be there. I trust you will be too. Drop Katy a line for more info.
