Love Sappho, Ovid and Catullus? So does Kostya Tsolakis! In this workshop, Kostya – editor of harana poetry, the online magazine for poets writing in English as a second or parallel language, and author of Ephebos (ignitionpress, 2020) – will share his favourite contemporary responses to Ancient Greek and Roman poets, including by Clare Pollard, Ted Hughes, Leontia Flynn and Jordi Alonso, and encourage you to write your own poems inspired by some of classical antiquity’s big poetic hits. Expect lyricism, profanity, terrible gods and dead sparrows.
