The Art of the Line with Hannah Lowe, Poetry Masterclass, 30/10/23

In this 2 hour workshop, Hannah Lowe, overall winner of the 2021 prestigious Costa prize, will focus on the art of the line, considering how line endings and line breakings work in tandem with other key elements of poetry, exploring how syntax, grammar, rhythm and rhyme are often combined with lineation. We will look at examples by poets such as Philip Levine, Mark Doty and Marie Howe, considering how techniques such as enjambment and caesura can augment poems and create new meanings and music.
