This workshop aims at beginner writers and those who don’t feel confident with some of the more modern forms of poetry. It will allow you to begin with the known and develop your style from concrete examples as a stepping stone to poetic growth. This will be accomplished by using situations people are familiar with and taking it from there, which is how Virginia writes. The session will involve writing exercises and employs examples from Viriginia’s poetry, and that of other poets, international and Australian.
