Poetry School: Poetic Theft: From Inspiration to Transformation with Louis Glazzard
Thu 6 Jun 2024 to Thu 1 Aug 2024
A transformative workshop series about harnessing your inspirations to expand your writing.

In this short course, we’ll learn how to transform your inspirations and experiences into exciting new work. First, we’ll look at personal transformation and how we might borrow from life, delving into real world examples and our personal voice for poetry. Then we’ll look at some famous storytelling examples, including novels and poems. We will explore a range of writers from different periods of literature with authors such as Albert Camus, Mary Shelly, the Bronte sisters, Margaret Atwood, Lawerence Ferlinghetti and a few more.

At the end, the goal is to have poems that explore something familiar, shaped around our own poetic agendas. The course is for anyone who’s ever felt inspired by other artists and wants to reference, expand their practice, and write using examples. The approach will be focused on theme and voice, as opposed to structure and technicality.

Louis Glazzard was born in Yorkshire, England. His poems have been published nationally by magazines including Untitled Voices, Queerlings, Polari Press and more, and his work has broadcasted on BBC Arts and BBC Radio 6.
