Via Gareth Twose:

“Writer’s Forum North is back in business running a Poetry Writing Workshop on Saturday, May 26th.  Anyone welcome.

If possible we would like people to bring two things: a poem or poems of their own;  & a poem (not their own) they either really love or hate.

As usual will be trying to offer constructive feedback and a few laughs.  It would really help if everyone could bring multiple photocopies of their poems, so everyone in the group can read them.

The session will run from 2-4pm .  And it’s in top floor at Madlab, Edge Street, in the Northern Quarter.”

This month WFN will be starting slightly earlier at 1pm, this is to make way for a discussion at 3pm about the riots and the role of the artist.

The riots that affected parts of Britain recently have been the occasion for much debate: what were the causes? What would be an appropriate response from government/local council to those involved? What can be done to ensure further riots do not occur?

This discussion is to consider what, if any, obligations/responsibilities in the aftermath of the riots are now incumbent upon people involved in creative work of every kind.

Is it necessary now for artists to concentrate on making work critiquing the ruling elite and/or demonstrating solidarity with the alienated populace?

Is it still even important that art is made?

Can art be a means to enable people to experience greater levels of engagement with their society?

Should art be calling for a complete re-organization of society?

*

We believe that discussion and debate is necessary to analyse the events that took place on our streets this August and to reaffirm the postion of the artist in these times.

Please come to MadLab on september3, 15:00-17:00 to make your views known.

This event is open to artists of all disciplines.

WFN July 2nd

Ideally, please bring along copies of the work you intend to read for the other group members. Anyone who wants to come along but doesn’t want to read is also very welcome.

Leeds’ only poetry workshop with the focus on work that doesn’t fit in the mainstream. Avant-garde techniques, humour and innovative use of language are all things that we like very much. We like work which has something to say about contemporary life yet shows an awareness of tradition.

Format of workshops will be poets reading from their work and receiving constructive feedback. It would be best if people could bring along copies of their work for the other group members to follow. It won’t be a problem if that isn’t possible though.

Anyone who wants to come along just to listen is very welcome.
