Dunedin City Library
When asked how he knows when a poem is working, Glenn Colquhoun said: “It’s like there is a conceit or irritation that makes me want to write about something and I keep going till I think the poem says what I want it to, or what it has decided to say instead. I just keep going until it gets up off the page and walks away.”
Glenn will share some of the skills he has developed in his own writing and give tips on how to get your poetry or prose walking off the page. Participants will need to provide 15 copies of a piece of their own creative writing, such as one or two poems or a short piece of prose (500–750 words).
Spaces limited, bookings essential. $40.
