Poetry: Hiding Places, Traps & Escape Routes with Martina Evans

 

In this course the poetry workshops are aimed at extending the participants’ scope, finding new “hot spots” and areas of fertile conflict. Through writing exercises, discussion and the use of personal maps, participants will be encouraged to investigate and extend their own personal labyrinths.
