Helen Mort Workshop: Metaphors We Live By: finding themes and images that inspire you

February 17th @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

£16.50 – £22.50

Helen Mort’s latest collection The Illustrated Woman (2022) uses the metaphor of tattooing to explore the agency we have over our bodies and the difference between how we want to be seen and how others may see us. In this workshop we will look at how successful metaphor and similies can do more than just bring your poems to life, they can help structure your thinking and the way you approach a sequence or a collection. We’ll read and discuss a range of contemporary work, from Natalie Diaz to Sunday Headliner Zaffar Kunial and explore creative prompts in a supportive environment.
