Ledbury Poetry Festival | Judy Brown, Workshop
(Dis)mantling, (dis)assembly and (dis)obedience: sometimes it’s the parts you need, not the whole. A poem can take things to bits as well as build them – it can dismantle bodies and buildings and excavate language and systems until the floor almost falls in.
This workshop led by Judy Brown will offer some ways of disassembling things we know to create new work. We will look at how to make your poem a zone of disobedience, and how threatening rogue authority figures can be.
Judy's first poetry collection, Loudness (Seren, 2011), was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for best first collection and the Fenton Aldeburgh Prize. Her most recent collection, Crowd Sensations (Seren, 2016) is a Poetry Book Society Recommendation and was shortlisted for the Ledbury Forte Second Collection Prize.
