Quay Words - The Trance Of Nature: A Poetry Course - Run By Pascale Petit

Exeter Custom House, 46 The Quay, Exeter, EX2 4AN
Many open books laid out together

About

On this course spread over five weeks, you will embark on outer and inner journeys, finding fresh ways to write about the places and themes that haunt your imagination. Pascale will bring binoculars, magnifying glasses, animal myths, and field-guides. Using exercises and games, she will show how poems can arrive from reading other poems, looking at the natural world, art, myth or from playing with images and language. At least one session will be outdoors, where we will track poems along the River Exe. We will capture our poems as though they were creatures which have a life of their own, beyond our knowledge. Bring a passion for nature and a love of poetry. By the end of the course, you will have created a personal menagerie, written during fieldwork, workshops, and with the aid of inspiring wildlife poems.

We are offering one bursary place for this course, which is available by application only and will be allocated on a first-come, first served basis. The bursary is awarded on the basis of financial need not writing ability. You can find out about how to apply for a bursary, here.

**Please note:** We are intending for this course to take place in-person at Exeter Custom House. We will be monitoring the latest Government guidance and following social distancing guidelines at the time of the course. We can accommodate free tickets for carers or personal assistants if needed. Please email us after booking to let us know if you would like to book one of these tickets.
