Poetry with Michelle Cahill

In this series of three workshops poet and author Michelle Cahill will teach on aspects of poetic craft: image, metaphor and voice. The focus is on how writers can best hone their language and sensibility to communicate lyric and narrative from and about Western Sydney , threading and reinvigorating culture, home, history and community. Poetry can be a powerful energy, rupturing the heteronormative with the strange, the alien, the haunted, the natural, the surreal.
