Event Description

Struggling to write a sestina? This workshop will help unlock this most complex yet rewarding of verse forms. We will review contemporary poems by Raych Jackson, A. E. Stallings, and Chad McCracken to gain insight into the sestina’s emotional weight and humorous potential, as well as its proclivity for memory and monologue. Participants will leave with a step-by-step plan and key tips to complete their own work. Zoom delivery, cost £25.

29 January, 11am-1pm
