About

This workshop aims to explore our voice through the genre of biomythography. ‘Bio’ meaning my story, and ‘myth’ meaning the stories we use to understand the world. Weaving these two elements together to create poetry in the style of biomythography. In each module we will be discovering a new aspect of how we understand and create bio-myth poetry. The workshop will be filled with lots of theory, lots of activities and games, and lots of examples. We will be creating lots of small bits of poetry individually and as a group throughout the workshop. There will be lots of time for 1:1 mentoring and for feedback through out the process.
