Swindon Festival of Literature masthead
Suffering for your art - workshop with Sara-Jane Arbury
A poetry-writing workshop that will explore the making of ekphrastic poems, inspired by visual art.

Focusing on the work of four visual artists who have profoundly suffered for their art in different ways, either in the making of their artwork or the final completed pieces, this workshop for adults will invite participants to write their own responses to the art and suffering we encounter.

Be prepared for an eye-opening exploration into a fascinating subject that travels to the borders of disbelief.

Sara-Jane will screen share images in this live online workshop - so, if you can, work from a device that can support this, such as smart phone, tablet or desktop computer.

The workshop is suitable for all levels, from beginners to more experienced writers.

A writer, performer and workshop facilitator, who has worked with the BBC, OUP, Bloodaxe Books, and the Poetry Society, Sara-Jane Arbury has a long and fruitful association with the Swindon Festival of Literature.

This workshop will NOT be recorded.

Tickets £10 - please pay via the Festival's Just Giving page - label your payment as 'Workshop fee'.
