This workshop of the Young Writers’ Festival will be with poet Alycia Pirmohamed.

This workshop is aimed at generating new work in a variety of poetic forms. Together, we will look at how contemporary poets use linebreaks and space in their work to construct a narrative. You will also be given a series of writing prompts in order to create new work, and there will be a chance to voluntarily share new writing.
