Yesterday I attended a fantastic workshop run by Singaporean poet Joshua Ip on Asian poetic forms at the SA Writers Centre. Josh came to Australia as part of a reading tour through the Griffith Review, the Brisbane Writers’ Festival and swung by Adelaide to deliver his one-off workshop.
Mike Hopkins has already done a brilliant job of describing the workshop so I won’t bother! (See it HERE.)
Thanks Joshua for enthusiastic insight and instruction in forms of poetry (many of them unfamiliar to me) and the opportunity to see and hear your unique work. (We swapped poetry books of course!) I hope to work with some of the forms and hopefully produce some publishable work over the next few months.
