Exploring Voice and Perspective in Poetry
with Annick MacAskill

June 25, 2022

How can an analysis of voice and perspective shift our understanding of poetry and our own writing practice?

In this three-hour workshop, we will consider the interactions among perspective, point of view, voice, and style in poetry. Our time will be filled with discussion, readings, and writing exercises. Participants can expect to come away with new strategies for their poetry and a few new drafts.

One-day workshop:

  • Saturday, June 25 (12pm–3pm Toronto/Eastern Time)

Recommended preparation:

  • Select two or three fully or partially drafted poems that you’re not quite happy with.

Suggested experience level: all writers, from beginner to established

Seats available: 12

Workshop fee: $50 Canadian
