Caroline Bird Workshop: The ‘I’ in Poetry
20th February 2022 @ 3:00 pm£16.50 – £22.50
3:00pm – 5:00pm
“I am not the “I” in my poems. “I” is the net I try to pull me in with.” – Toi Derricotte. Who are you? Who is the speaker of your poems? In this workshop, we’ll use the ‘I’ as a disguise, a net, a shield, an illusion, a dare. We’ll write from the point of view of a self we don’t recognise yet. We’ll stumble off through the forest of the page, further and further from ourselves, hoping to meet a new version walking back to us.
