Shane McCauley is back with another poetry workshop called Editing Your Poetry, which is about…editing your poetry!
If you went to Shane’s beginners poetry workshop, Introduction to Poetry, in March then this workshop is the other half of your poetry education.
Shane has made this workshop to be purely practical. So, applicants will be immersed in methods of how to shape a poem, what to include and exclude, how to utilize imagery to the best effect, how to incorporate sounds and rhythms in both traditional and free poetic forms. Applicants will also examine examples of the good and the not-so-good.
Shane McCauley has been a TAFE/University lecturer since the mid-1970s and seven of his books of poetry have been published, most recently The Drunken Elk (Sunline Press, 2010) and Ghost Catcher (Studio Press, 2012). He was awarded the 2008 Max Harris Poetry Award. So your poetry will be in good hands!
We have several places still available so the closing date for registrations to this workshop has been dropped for now to allow for any interested parties to apply at a time that’s appropriate for them. But make sure you get in soon because Editing Your Poetry will be taking place on the 30th of May. You may apply via phone, email or through our new online application process on our website!
