Session a. on 8 May, Session b. on 9 May
Poetry As_A Lens (A Workshop)
Poets spend hours scrutinizing words on the page. SAND’s three-part virtual event series “Poetic Vision” turns our gaze outward through a poem’s lens. How do poets view visual art, science, and film? How can we creatively channel other media in a text that speaks for itself?
Following our opening webinar on 25 April 2021, “Poems Meet Visual Art, Science, and Film” (available as a replay on Crowdcast if you missed it), anyone who tries one of our guest presenters’ prompts is encouraged to sign up for this workshop with Crista Siglin, one of SAND’s two poetry editors, who is also the coordinator of Poetry As__A Workshop, author of the collection Unpleasable Nature, and a practicing visual artist. During this guided, collaborative workshop, which is capped at 15 participants per session, poets of all experience levels will share, discuss, and hone their pieces. Workshop participants will also have the opportunity to read their poems in our concluding reading, “Intermingled Visions” on Sunday 23 May, which will be livestreamed on YouTube in collaboration with Singapore’s Sing Lit Station. (More information on the whole Poetic Visions event series here.)
