Poetry Workshop with Katrina Naomi | Teignmouth Poetry Festival

'What Makes a Prize-Winning Poem?' Katrina Naomi knows about competition success – only last year she won the prestigious Keats-Shelley Competition.  But as a highly experienced judge she is also well-qualified to talk about the elusive art of making a judge sit up and take notice.  She will discuss how not to do it, but mostly she’ll encourage people to think about titles, first lines, last lines, verbs, even themes – and that crucial matter of injecting some flamboyance. Katrina's most recent collection, Wild Persistence, (Seren, 2020), received an Authors’ Foundation award from the Society of Authors and her poetry has appeared on Poems on the Underground and BBC Radio 4’s Front Row. Tickets: £15. For further information and to book visit:
