Jennifer Wong Workshop: Writing Mothers
February 18th @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm£16.50 – £22.50
What do we talk about when we talk about mothers? How does one begin to articulate one’s closeness or distance with the mother, and the changing identities and understanding? In this workshop, participants will get to explore new directions in their writing by addressing the complexity and contradictions of mothers or about motherhood. The creative process includes experimenting with different points of view, ways of excavating emotional truth, as well as to play with forms and techniques such as prose poetry, erasure and found poems. We will look at different examples of writing mothers by poets who portray or question motherhood, including the works by Rebecca Goss, Natalie Bolderston, Joanna Ingham, Marie Howe and Ada Limon.
