Poetry For Prose Writers

  • The Teahouse Theatre Cafe 139 Vauxhall Walk London, England, SE11 5HL United Kingdom (map)

Guest writer: Maura Dooley

“Poetry is good because it flexes muscles you don’t often use enough. Poetry keeps you aware of your nose, your eye, your tongue, your hand. And, above all, poetry is compacted metaphor or simile.” Ray Bradbury: Zen in the Art of Writing

Join us alongside the award winning poet, Maura Dooley, as we discuss how thinking like a poet helps prose-writers to “flex muscles you don't use enough”. Maura is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and Reader in Creative Writing at Goldsmiths. You should come away from tonight’s salon with a clearer idea of the possibilities, and some creative suggestions to enrich your practice and nourish your prose.
