Remix the Poet: What song offers poetry
Sat 14 Nov 2015 to Sat 14 Nov 2015
Turn a poem into a song and back into a poem. Edit with your ears and see how the process impacts your imagining of a poem's potential

Saturday 14 November10-4pm
The Olive Room, Gregson Centre, Lancaster, LA1 3PY

In this playful, exploratory workshop we will be using the song form to transform the way you think about writing.

Using a variety of activities, writing and thinking time, discussions, silence and time outdoors, poet Sarah Hymas & musician Steve Lewis will share their practice as collaborators and turn the volume up on your own processes.

"We have found that setting poetry to music encourages the light in. Once the words are sung, resonances spark, new phrases are found, and different ways of speaking them emerge. The poem matures. This workshop will offer you alternative ways of editing and give you a fresh confidence in your writing and how you share it.”

Attending the workshop includes the option to air the results of the day at the following week’s Spotlight Club in Lancaster.

All writers, of any genre and experience level, are welcome

Hymas&Lewis have been making spoken and sung performances and installations for audiences around the North of England and Scotland since 2004.
