Event description

Description

This course introduces students to the craft and joy of writing poetry, covering aspects such as the image, line structure, rhythm, rhyme, sound, form and tropes. Classes are comprised of a weekly lecture and tutorials that include a range of exercises. At the beginning of the course, students are introduced to a range of different poetic forms, aligned with their first exercise portfolio assessment. In the second half of the course the tutorial format changes to workshops in which students receive detailed feedback on their work and give feedback to others, in preparation for their final portfolio. The students also have an explication exercise as part of their assessment during the semester.

Dr Victoria Bladen teaches in poetics, literary studies and adaptation at The University of Queensland, Australia and has received a Faculty award for teaching excellence. She has published on early modern poetry, Shakespeare and Shakespeare on screen, and convenes annual summer schools at UQ and abroad. Her creative practice includes poetry, composing music for piano, painting and collage, and she has held four solo exhibitions of her work. The most recent, The Garden (Aspire Gallery 2016), included public readings of her ekphrastic poetry. She is currently working on a volume of poetry entitled Postcards from the Sea.

Victoria will be using the online tool Padlet, a digital canvas that facilitates group work, in most tutorials and some lectures. She recently presented a demonstration of this tool at the UQ Electro Expo and it may be of interest to other teaching staff to see it in operation.
