What’s On @ The Tonsley Pod:

Thursday 7 December:

  • Contemporary Poetry Workshop with Mike Ladd 

    Mike Ladd's contemporary poetry workshop is friendly, fun and informative. It will suit those who have begun writing poetry, perhaps even had a few poems published and now want to take the next step. In the first half of the workshop Mike will give some examples of different contemporary styles and discuss what makes a poem work well, or what can bring it to grief. There will also be an overview of the current poetry scene in Australia and what opportunities exist for poets. The second half of the class will be more hands-on. Participants can if they wish bring one of their own recent poems to share with Mike and the group for feedback and editing suggestions.

     9.30am - 12.45pm
    Cost: $10 per person, payable at time of booking
