Poetry workshop for Young Writers

31 August 2019 - Chemistry

Aspiring young writers are invited to join poet Dr Lynley Edmeades at the Teece Museum of Classical Antiquities for a two-hour poetry workshop.

Poets have used paintings, photographs, and historic artefacts as inspiration for hundreds of years. In this workshop, you will look at how other poets have used objects as starting points for poems, and reflect on objects in the University of Canterbury’s Teece Museum to stimulate and prompt ideas for writing your own poems.

Get inspired by the workshop, and enter the Teece Museum Fantastic Feasts Poetry Competition – see the museum’s Facebook page for more details on how to enter.

The poetry workshop is for students aged 11 to 18 years old. Entry to this workshop will be free, but places are limited, so please register via the link below.
