Thursday 26 February, 6-9pm
Taking inspiration from the paintings of Katy Moran, in this workshop with poet and musician Simon Pomery, you will be invited to read poetry influenced by surrealism, and apply leaps of thought, image and idea to new poems of your own. We will look back to An Anthology of Contemporary Latin-American Poetry(1942) and across to recent internet poetry from 3:AM magazine.
This workshop is hosted in partnership with the drawing shed.
Simon Pomery is a poet and musician based in London. His poems have been published in places including the Times Literary Supplement, The White Review, Edinburgh Review, P.N. Review, and Poetry London. The Stream (tall-lighthouse, 2010) was published to acclaim by the TLS and the late Seamus Heaney, who wrote “This augurs well for the Pomery life and literature”.
Simon was the 2013 Poet-in-Residence at MultiMadeira Festival. His ‘Blood Music E.P.’ was released in June 2013 on Diagonal Records, on transparent red vinyl in gold screen-printed PVC sleeve.
