Arvon at Home Masterclass: The news that stays news with Clare Pollard
Thu 25 Feb 2021 to Thu 25 Feb 2021
Many of us will have felt the desire to write poetry that bears witness over the last year. But we might also be anxious about writing poems that ‘date’, or aware of Pound’s assertion that literature ‘is the news that stays news’.

In this masterclass we will read and write poems that respond to current world events, exploring strategies for writing your times both obliquely and directly, with reference to forms that pay attention to the moment, from haiku to poetic journals.

Clare Pollard has published five collections of poetry with Bloodaxe, most recently Incarnation. She edits Modern Poetry in Translation. Her latest book is a non-fiction title, Fierce Bad Rabbits: The Tales Behind Children’s Picture Books (Penguin)
