"NO POETRY, Just DUMPLING'z"
There are two excellent poet-related films screening as part of PIAF (Perth International Arts Festival) 2017:
“Each day in a New Jersey town, Paterson (actor Adam Driver) gets up and writes a short, sweet poem before beginning work as a bus driver. In the evenings he returns to his loving wife and dog, all the while paying attention to the people who make up his richly patterned world.”
This Saturday (10th December 2016) our feature poet is Virginia O’Keefe, and if the stars and planets align themselves we expect to have Glen Phillips reading John Ryan’s poetry.
Virginia O'Keeffe has lived across most states and taught in high schools for most of her life. She is fascinated by social history. She has been short listed twice for the Tom Collins prize and been commended in the Creatrix Poetry Awards. She has also written short stories and a column in her local monthly suburban magazine.
The Writing Connection 2017
The Grammar of Love
a course in meaning
The course content is based on the idea that the pivotal stages in world literature express stages of relatedness or love.
In The Grammar of Love we will look at the way that significant writers have dealt with these stages in their work. We will use their attempts as a springboard for our own writing.
