Writing Workshop: not just poetry – creative imagery for writers
September 14 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
The techniques poets use will be helpful for anyone who’d like to lift their writing to a higher level. In this workshop we’ll look first at some examples of imagery in poetry and discuss why it’s so important in other kinds of writing. We’ll follow this with a written exercise using a template to create some interesting and unusual metaphors for use in writing.
Facilitator: Gill Goater
Gill’s been involved in writing for many years. She’s especially interested in modern poetry and the breadth of human experiences poets write about. She facilitates a poetry group and is a founding member of a writers group where she gives occasional workshops. She’s been a presenter on the last 3 annual Grassroots Writers Workshops. Gill’s work has been published in anthologies, magazines, on ABC regional radio and in her book ‘Occupied by Gods’.
