THE HYBRID FORM: PROSE POETRY
19 & 26 NOVEMBER, KĀPITI
Join writer, and current New Zealand Poet Laureate, Chris Tse for this two-day Kāpiti workshop on Prose Poetry.
In this workshop, participants will take a deep dive into the history of prose poetry and analyse examples of the form before writing and workshopping their own prose poems.
What can prose poetry offer to both writers and readers that other poetic forms can’t?
“The Kāpiti Writers’ Retreat was like a home coming. I left feeling nourished and nurtured, attaining more knowledge and confidence to step firmly into my life as a writer. Thanks to all those who shared their wisdom, words and energy of encouragement throughout the weekend.”
“The Kāpiti Writers’ Retreat is different to other retreats. It’s not just the quality of the presenters, it’s that the weekend doesn’t feel too packed or rushed. You have time to reflect and go into depth.”
“Space and time to write, think writing, talk writing, away from the bustle and commitments of everyday life is a fantastic gift. I’ve come away with new friends, new ideas, and new tools to enrich my writing.”
