Things To Do In London – Poetry & Comics

chrissieThe Poetry School in London is running a day long Poetry & Comics course with tutor Chrissy Williams, starting on the 2nd November from 10.30am – 4.30pm.

Spend the day approaching the page in a new way, framed by the visual language of comics. We'll think about the ways others have used visual sequence in their poetry, from William Blake to Ian Hamilton Finlay, to contemporaries such as Matthea Harvey and Bianca Stone. No prior experience (or art skills) required. Just look forward to a day of collaging, thinking about the effectiveness and economy of line at work in comics, and how you can apply this to your own poetry writing.

Open to all, though you'll have to stump up the £69. Book online or call 0207 582 1679
