with poet Simon Pomery
Thursday 29 October, 6pm – 9pm
Taking inspiration from the current exhibition, this poetry writing workshop will be filled with inspiring poems and exercises influenced by speech generators, engines and other online devices. No previous experience necessary, but a willingness to experiment is!
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, 3am magazine, 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”. He has given readings for The Hardy Tree Gallery, Camaradefest, and Interrobang. Simon was the 2013 Poet-in-Residence at MultiMadeira Festival, and has hosted workshops for South London Gallery and Full of Noises Festival (with Sound Fjord and Octopus Collective).
His most recent release under his Blood Music alias is “Chicks” (Diagonal Records, 2015).
