A poetry workshop that looks at how breath plays a vital part in delivering your poem to the reader via the page. 

This workshop lead by Robert Harper, who has teamed up with Writers Bloc Society, explores working with prepared and found texts to discover how we can impart the essence of live performance onto the page itself. Each workshop participant should bring a short poem (no more than 14 lines) to work on during the session.

Robert Harper is the editor of Bare Fiction Magazine. He is currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Birmingham in space & parenthesis in the poetry of the Objectivists, for which he is working on a long sequence poem. Robert’s poetry has appeared in many journals and anthologies, including The Interpreter’s House, Acumen, Lonely Crowd, Ink Sweat and Tears, And Other Poems, Marble Poetry, and New Welsh Review. In 2014 Robert was Highly Commended in the Poetry Book Society Student Poetry Competition.

The Bare Fiction Prize for poetry, flash fiction and short stories runs each year with a deadline of October 31st. See the Bare Fiction website for more details.
