POETRY VERSES PROSE
With Kathryn Apel
Learn how writing in verse develops writing muscle and sparks creativity.
If you’re interested in poetry – or intimidated – this workshop will equip you with a variety of simple techniques to build writing muscle and spark creativity, across all genres.
This workshop is delivered through Queensland Writers Centre’s partnership with Book Links QLD Inc. Special prices apply for members of both organisations.
Poetry is as much a discipline as a discovery. Through individual exercises and group discussion, participants will:
Revisit familiar literary devices and identify them in poetry samples.
Learn a number of poetry forms that develop writing muscle.
Play with poetry forms that spark creativity.
Take away a toolkit of poetry techniques to apply across writing genres.
This is a craft workshop for writers of all levels. More information on program formats and level definitions can be found here.

Kat loves pumping poetry because she can flex her muscles across other genres, to bend (and break) writing rules. A trained teacher and literacy consultant, Kat shares her passion for words at schools and festivals.
