Out-Spoken Masterclass : October 2018

  • The Poetry Café 22 Betterton Street London, England, WC2H 9BX United Kingdom (map)

Out-Spoken's masterclasses are a chance to hone your writing and performance skills with some of the UK's finest poets at The Poetry Cafe.

October's masterclass will be led my Amy Key!

It is impolite to want something. We are admonished for it, the parental voice reminding us “I think you mean I would like?” But what if poetry allows us to be the Veruca Salts of our hearts?: Don't care how I want it now! Don't care how I want it now!

Using the work of Rosemary Tonks, Chelsey Minnis, Morgan Parker, Mary Ruefle and others, we will explore poems of disobedience, want and desire. How in poems we can catalogue – and possibly attain – the things we want most of all.
