Join us in person at Ross House for our June monthly meeting with a workshop on Poetry. The workshop will last approximately 90 minutes. Alice White has been writing poetry since she was nineteen. She has been a featured reader at number of venues including Passionate Tongues, Inspyr, St Kilda Music & Poetry Inc and the Melbourne Poets Union. She has also been published in a range of journals, participated in The Emerging Writers’ Festival, had several poems broadcast on the radio and one which travelled on Melbourne trains! Over the years she has collaborated with musician Cate Langley with whom she created the musical Falling Feathers (based on her unpublished children's novel) which was performed by BDC Dance and Drama in 2016. She has two books of poetry written with Nick Hamer-Smith: Heartstricken (Ginninderra Press 2001) and Heartspoken (self-published in 2023.) Alice has taught English and Literature in high schools for over 30 years. She is very much looking forward to leading the workshop on 21st June, where she plans to share some favourite poems, using them as springboards for a number of short writing activities to explore poetic techniques with a particular emphasis on how poets play with pattern, including rhythm and rhyme.
