A poet must constantly look for new ways to explore and engage with poetry, in order to develop and grow. This masterclass is designed to encourage the more experienced poet to step outside their comfort zone and go into the unknown, uncomfortable edge of their creativity. To go on this journey, you will need to bring along a poem in progress (and, if possible, an early draft ). This half day masterclass will include some opportunities for feedback.

Anne Kellas is a writer, editor, and mentor to poets. Anne’s passion is teaching poetry, which she has done in Hobart for the past 25 years. In 2014 and 2015 she lectured in poetry (a spring school unit) at the UTas. Her most recent collection is The White Room Poems (Walleah Press, 2015).
