Scarlett Ward Workshop – A monster in the shape of a woman: poetic retellings of mythological female figures

18th February 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

£12.50 – £16.50

A poetry writing workshop that examines the presentation of women figures in retellings of mythology. From witches to goddesses, female archetypes have served to perpetuate patriarchal stereotypes and dictate the behaviour of women throughout history. In this workshop, we will explore how myths and legends can be utilised to prompt and colour our understandings of, and rebel against, expectations within society, and furthermore can act as a lens through which we can structure modern retellings and reclaim the narrative through poetry.All levels of experience welcome!
