– poetry workshop with Les Wicks –
6 hours plus substantial prior editorial work in an extraordinary locale.


Venue: Community Hall, Dangar Island
Saturday 10 March 10.45 to 5.00 with a 30″ break for lunch (vegetarian, included in price).

This template has been a complete charge for everyone. One of the country’s leading poetry facilitators will be giving a workshop in Sydney.

This project will consist of three components.

Everyone gets in advance a strategy sheet on editing their work. Then, participants will send four poems (maximum 30 lines each) to 14 days prior to the workshop. The poems with commentary will be distributed to the participants four days prior to their workshop. Participants should bring a copy of the entire commentary document to the workshop.

On the day of the workshop, participants will work intensively through each other’s poems building on prior suggestions and experiencing a dynamic interplay of ideas/insights.

Should they so wish, participants will have a chance to have a piece published in the e-mag Australian Poetry Collaboration, which is widely read and archived by the National Library’s Pandora.

It is strictly limited to only 8 attendees.

Bookings must be made by 17 February.

Cost $100.
