Reading for Writing – a final tumble takeover

Ever wondered what it would be like to have not just the book to look at, but also the poet to interrogate? Join Joanna Preston for a single-session rummage through her award winning second collection, tumble.

Once again this will be a Reading for Writing session, with the emphasis on discussing the selected poems, and two writing exercises for you to try on your own. But as a bonus, this time you get to pick which poems we’ll be dissecting – the four poems put forward by most people will be the ones we go with.

Saturday afternoon
2 pm to 5 pm
online via Zoom
Fee: Koha – pay whatever you want. Or not. Up to you.

Maximum of 10 participants

But wait, there’s more:

AMA: Ask Me Anything (about the book)

Following on from the workshop, I’m opening up the stream to a one hour Ask Me Anything session, for those of you who would like to know things about individual poems, the process, the playlist, anything at all tumble-related.

Absolutely free, and with no limit to numbers or anything like that. I will require people to register first so we don’t end up with trolls crashing the event, but apart from that it’s completely open to anyone who would like to come along. I will do my very best to answer your questions.
