About this Event

Experience various writing styles and learn tips for keeping inspiration alive and well with poet Gillian Swain. You are welcome to bring some of your own poetry to work on. There will be the opportunity to look at current work as well as writing on the day.

A great opportunity for new poets to get started, or for more established poets to learn new ways to extend your work.

Gillian Swain has a poetry collection “My Skin its own Sky” (Flying Islands Press 2019) and shared first place with Magdalena Ball in the MacLean’s Booksellers Award (Grieve Project 2019). She was the curator of all things poetry at the Indie Writers Festival ‘IF Maitland’ in February 2020

This workshop is part of Stand Up for Poetry, a Hunter regional poetry program presented by Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, and Port Stephens Libraries. It is an exciting series of poetry workshops, panels, spoken word showcases and slam heats across the Hunter region in 2020.

For beginners and the more experienced poets to learn, write, perform, listen, enjoy and prepare for the Australian Poetry Slam 2020.
