This workshop, engaging both generative and reflective modes, will focus on two things: perception and the creative cycle. Considering poetry as a non-invasive tool of exploration that has particular access to the world’s subtle interstices, we will use various ekphrastic techniques to generate writing that we will then put through a series of response and redrafting stages in order to examine ways of working raw material into a finished piece.

Cole often bases her poetry collections around specific research projects: she has written books on things such as the French formal garden (Ours), the paintings of Pierre Bonnard, (The Glass Age) and the anatomy of the hand (The Book of a Hundred Hands). Her most recent work, Gravesend, looks at the evolution of the ghost in western society.
