Writing from memory – a poetry workshop with Tara Skurtu

Fri. 24/02 → Fri. 24/02

Carturesti, Pictor Arthur Verona 13, Bucharest, Romania

❝We all have the same fears about writing. What if it’s not good enough? What if I can’t find the right words? What if no one likes it? In this poetry workshop we’ll address our fears and write past them. I’ll guide you through creative exercises that will get you writing without thinking what if. We’ll use personal memory (full of images, stories, senses, and feelings) as the basis for our writing, and you’ll surprise yourself with what you’ll be able to write: a poem which captures a clear moment of transformation and tells a story.❞
