Writers’ Night School: Poetry of the Eye

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
