How to create poetry out of nothing and everything - an online writing workshop with Shloka Shankar

About this event

About the Workshop:

Poetry Is Everywhere: An Introduction to Found and Visual Poetry is my signature workshop that was created during the pandemic in 2020. As someone who has been dabbling with these techniques for over half a decade, I wanted to introduce other creatives to these sometimes overlooked genres of experimental writing. This workshop aims to posit to you a wide array of fresh perspectives in the realm of poetry and, more importantly, creative expression.

What you will learn:

- What is found poetry?

- What characterizes a good found poem?

- What materials can you use to create your poem?

- Types of found & visual poems

- How to create poetry out of nothing & everything :)

4pm -5:30pm: Central European Summer Time

7:30pm -9pm: India Standard Time

7am -9:30am: Pacific Daylight Time

10am -12:30pm: Eastern Daylight Time
