In this session, you'll have the chance to both read and write in a relaxed setting.

First up, we'll analyse three raps and poems that speak to the power of spontaneity and flow rather than structure and rigidity when it comes to creation. These include: "Megan Monday Freestyle" by rapper Megan Thee Stallion, "Risk" by diarist and poet Anais Nin, and "[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]" by E. E. Cummings. All are written in what's known rather ~vaguely~ as "free verse", which admittedly sounds like a poetry euphemism for "you know what kids, just write, like, whatever". 

Once lubricated, we'll segue from analysis into experimenting with a writing technique of our own known as "spontaneous writing". There's no need to prepare for this - whatever comes up and out on the day is exactly the thing that you're supposed to write.

Location: The Village Inn, Paddington. Second level, in the cosy couch section. Drinks and snacks are available at the bar. There'll also be tea on hand for any non-drinkers. Poems will be provided. Bring pen and paper for writing!
