Saturday 10 March|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 written about a sense of what might exist beyond the material and everyday, whether through organised religion, New Age spirituality or what it means to have a sense of the numinous from an atheist point of view. This day school will examine notions of the ‘spirit’ 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 third of a series of three which can be booked separately – see also Poetry of Mind, Body and Spirit 20th January and 3rd February.
