Digital Poetry and the Invention of Meaning Workshop with Professor Penny Florence

A workshop exploring individual experience and its transformations into poetry, including the computer. What has any of this to do with gender?
No experience (or liking for!) computers is necessary, and no experience of writing, either. Even if you think you loathe computers, there will be something for you.

The idea is to think about how different approaches to writing can contribute to everyone’s enjoyment of poetry, whether as writer or reader.
The workshop will begin with writing a very short poem, which you will be able to read out for feedback, if you wish. We will then go on to explore where we might take our new pieces, including looking at any related examples any of us might come up with.

Finally we’ll look at some examples of visual, video and digital poetry, and see what new avenues they open up. The various ways new and growing forms of writing can be enjoyed – and can be relevant to poetry in general – might suprise you! When we’ve all thought about these examples in relation to the short piece you wrote at the beginning, you might even find it can add a new dimension to your writing.

There will be plenty of opportunity for questions throughout, and the emphasis of the workshop will be up to you.

Bring a notebook and an open mind.
