Be inspired to write by art on display in Wolverhampton Art Gallery’s exhibitions.
Poetry Shots are creative writing workshops aimed at capturing each individual’s personal response to artworks. Participants explore a range of poetic techniques for interpreting, inhabiting and confronting an artwork, or ‘speaking’ to its subject or the artist. Whether new to writing or more experienced, you will find new ideas to invigorate your creativity; absorbed in the acts of looking and writing, you discover new ways of seeing and thinking about art and language.
The focus will include current exhibitions in the gallery, particularly Michael Lyons’s sculpture.
These workshops are led by Dymphna Callery whose poems feature in two volumes from Liverpool’s Walker Art Gallery collection: The Poets’ View (1996) and The Poets’ Perspective (2010) as well as in her collection What She Sad and What She Did (1997).
