The Poetics of the River Wandle (Helen Frosi) | Confluence: The River Speaks
The Poetics of the Wandle is an experimental poetry workshop, led by Helen Frosi, looking at the Wandle’s waters for material and inspiration.
Using as inspiration selected field recordings, photographs and objects collected along the river, participants will also learn a variety of experimental strategies to create work – from automatic writing, and cut up techniques to erasure and folding techniques.
Work together and independently, participants will create sonic and concrete (visual) poems, incorporating images, onomatopoeic words and invented languages within their works to trace, invoke and transform the sounds, shapes and textures of the waters.
Towards the end of the session, participants will present their works and perform them should they wish!
