This afternoon workshop explores the inner and outer realities of the city, and how they can be used as a source of inspiration for poetry.
The workshop starts by discussing our relationship to cities - How do we inhabit cities? How do they make us feel? - and learning about methods used by artists to engage with the city, like psychogeography, derive and flanerie.
This is followed by a 'walking workshop' - a tour through central London - during which the group gets to know more about the architecture and history of some of London's most iconic landmarks, like St Paul's Cathedral, the Gherkin and the bridges along the Thames.
Finally, the group workshops the poems which emerge from this walking exercise.
This event starts at Royal Festival Hall Ticket Office
