A Room of One’s Own will provide an opportunity for poets to initiate the creative process of experimenting with language, form and identity. We will explore poetry within the home using objects and music. Participants are encouraged to bring one object from their home to the workshop.
The session will include poetry-writing exercises to give voice to the personal experience of space and solitude. We will also delve into prose poems, sonnets and haikus. Taking inspiration from contemporary poets include Jacqueline Saphra, Mona Arshi and others.
