This is an exciting opportunity for poets of all abilities to generate new poems in response to Anita Taylor’s stunning work. In this writing workshop we will:

  • read and discuss a selection of contemporary poems which have been inspired by visual art;
  • discuss the subjects of Anita Taylor’s drawings which include stories from Greek mythology, the Old Testament and other subjects;
  • consider the means of production of Taylor’s work;
  • identify and discuss recurring themes in Taylor’s work, particularly in her large scale charcoal drawings;
  • consider different approaches to writing poems in response to visual art.

After initial studio-based discussions, workshop activities and time at the exhibition, you will have the opportunity to work on your poems before gathering together for informal sharing and feedback. I’ll also be available for poetry chat over a light lunch at the Studio Cafe at Drawing Projects.  Book online here or in person at Drawing Projects UK.

Please get in touch with any questions either by email to me josephinemcorcoran@yahoo.co.uk or you can leave a message at the bottom of this page.

This is a thrilling and thought-provoking exhibition in a beautiful space.  Bring your pen and notebook and be inspired!
