Saturday 3 February|10am-4pm Tutor: Victoria Field | Canterbury campus | £42 Reading poetry and writing in response is a way of engaging deeply with the human condition and can illuminate the ways in which we see ourselves, others and the world around us. Poets have often used the body as a starting point for reflecting on what it means to live a life. Ideas of what the body is and how we connect through it are especially important at times of illness and also when we are reminded of our mortality, whether through aging or loss. This day school will examine notions of the ‘body’ through a close reading of mostly contemporary poems and some short prose extracts. Participants will be invited to do some writing in response to the poems but no previous experience of creative writing is required. We will reflect on the process of what emerges rather than any literary merit. For anyone who is writing more formally, the day will generate much new material and ideas. This day school is the second of a series of three which can be booked separately – see also Poetry of Mind, Body and Spirit 20th January and 10th March.
