Poetry Workshop with Camilla Nelson

Saturday 28 September
9.45am - 12.00pm

 
 

Border-Line:
Writing Between Human/Tree

Make a mark with a tree. Make a mark like a tree. Who or what makes these marks? How might we read these marks? Are these marks words?

Through a variety of sonic, gestural and mark-making prompts this materially-engaged, performance writing workshop questions the nature of human language and explores how an interdisciplinary, interspecies approach to words might establish a better sense of our kinship with trees.

You will need comfortable outdoor clothes & shoes, a notebook, a pen/pencil and an open mind.
