The session will concentrate on voice and persona. How do we use names and personal pronouns? How far can we presume to speak for or about others? How does doing so help us understand our own potential voices and personae and how do we shape such voices into poems? The workshop will take inspiration from the exhibition Characters: People and Portraits from the Arts Council Collection.
