Writing the Self with Pascale Petit, Masterclass 5/12/23
What are the ways into writing the personal in poetry? How can you make it intimate, playful and inventive for the writer and reader?
Pascale will guide you to explore how to estrange the personal to make it new, while drawing closer to your truth. You will learn strategies for expanding your sense of self-in-writing by inspiring example poems, and you will use images to help write imaginary and real selves.
