Poetry workshop in Fremantle! The semantics of silence: writing poems that breathe. 28 April 2018

Poetry workshop in Fremantle! Come and write with me.

scene of silence for poetry workshop in Fremantle

Poetry is made of words, but that’s only half the story. Poets compose with silences, too. The pauses in a poem let it breathe and come alive. Explore the uses of silence through writing experiments and examples in a supportive, encouraging setting. Everyone is welcome, from old hands to beginners. Please bring pen and paper.

Saturday 28 April 2018
