Hosted by poet Toby Fitch, this workshop will open your eyes to the potential of the poem on the page. By tracing historical examples of visual and concrete poetry — from ancient Greek to early modernist to recent local works — and then by assembling a visual poem of your own, you will learn to explode your poetry across the page, and not just from top to bottom or left to right — in any direction. Bring text (your own poem, another’s, or whatever you like) to reshape during the workshop.
Presented in partnership with Australian Poets Festival and Cordite Poetry Review
