English Poetry Writing Workshop
Saturday, 16 July 2016 from 10:30 to 13:30 (Singapore Standard Time Singapore Time)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
In this workshop Mr Luke Allan, managing editor at Carcanet Press, Sine Wave Peak and PN Review, will host a conversation about poetic form and the pleasures of formal innovation. During the workshop we will be invited to think about form with open and adventurous minds, not only as a means of conversing with the past but also as a continual source of novelty and delight, innovation and surprise, trial and error. The informal session will mix discussion and exercise, emphasising group dialogue and practical experiment.
Mr Allan studied Literature and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia. Before joining Carcanet in 2015, he worked as a project manager in the arts in Newcastle and Edinburgh, and managed Studio Alec Finlay and the poetry press Morning Star. He is founding director of the poetry press Sine Wave Peak and co-founder of the poetry magazine Butcher’s Dog; he also edits the journal Quait and is former editor of the Newcastle Philosophy Society journal. In 2011, his poetry received a Northern Promise Award. His first poetry collection, Minimum Soft Exchange, was published by MIEL in 2015.
