Poetry Masterclass

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 9 August 2019
Author / Presenters: Anthony Lawrence

Join acclaimed Australian poet Anthony Lawrence for a masterclass designed to help writers tap into the marvellous, that often runs below and through what appears to be ordinary or commonplace. This workshop will help you turn what you see into images that are at once original and captivating. You will find, through the poems on offer and the exercises Anthony takes you through, ways to look, methods to capture, and techniques to then imprint in words, alternatives to what we know of the world. Anthony Lawrence has published sixteen books of poems. His books and individual poems have won many awards, including the Philip Hodgins Memorial Medal; The Kenneth Slessor Poetry Prize (NSW Premier’s Award for Poetry); Josephine Ulrick Poetry Prize; Newcastle Poetry Prize; the Blake Poetry Prize; Judith Wright Calanthe Award; Gwen Harwood Memorial Award.

Level: Advanced. Pitched for poets, however the workshop applies to all experienced writers.

Ticket only $120
