Next week I've been invited to be guest speaker on this Arvon Foundation course. I'll be talking about my work in poetry film with hybrid and brevity as my keywords for the evening. As of today there are a last few spaces still up for grabs.
The description of the course for the week sounds fab:
"... Without sacrificing depth, richness, story or meaning, we will examine and probe the tiniest works made of words – whether as prose, poetry or other shapes – and take inspiration from other miniatures across all fields, from the microscopic in science and art to the briefest of films and pieces of music, to create our own. Together we will approach the very small from many different angles, cutting down to it, working up to it, weighing it to feel every word, every pause and punctuation mark, discussing what is needed, what can be let go. Come join us in praise of the petite. "
And its in person, and residential at The Hurst, in Shropshire - the one-time home of playwright John Osborne. I can't wait.
