Poetry School: "GRRR, ARGGH”: Poems Inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Sat 31 Oct 2020 to Sat 31 Oct 2020
A Halloween special day-course with poet Chrissy Williams on Zoom. Poets from all over the world can join for a day of writing new poems – the ultimate Buffy fandom/poetry/Halloween crossover event!

What do you love about Buffy? Is it the one-liners? The heartache? The empowerment? The apocalypses? We’ll be looking at different tropes and unpacking what we love about the show, watching Buffy clips and reading existing poems to compare ideas and craft, and to generate new work.

This isn’t about heavy critiquing – this will be a fast-paced day that revolves around creating new ideas and coming at the fandom, and poetry, from different angles. We’ll be using lots of fun games and writing prompts to shake up the writing process and give you some new tools.

Chrissy Williams‘s first collection Bear (Bloodaxe, 2017), was described by The Telegraph (50 Best Books of the Year) as an “inventive, goofy, oddly moving debut”, and by Poetry Review as having an “interest in the unknown [which] runs through the volume from ghost websites to distant galaxies”. Her pamphlet Flying into the Bear was shortlisted for the Michael Marks Award. Her work has been published in numerous pamphlets, magazines and anthologies.

Date: Saturday 31 October 2020, 10.30am – 4.30pm
Location: Zoom
Cost: £75
