Filigree masterclass with Nii Parkes

Sat 20 Feb 2016 11-4pm

An opportunity to craft your poetry with the award-winning co-editor of a new and exciting collection of contemporary Black British poetry from Peepal Tree Press’ Inscribe imprint. Under the sure hand of Nii Ayikwei Parkes create potential submissions for this new anthology with its theme of ‘Filigree’.

In this workshop you will be encouraged explore the idea, and respond in compelling ways to the idea of filigree – the barely present, that which suggests itself while lounging in the shadows; the idea of the fine, the unspoken essential, the intangible tangible.

Through discussion and exercises, participants will be encouraged to see writing as a process, which requires the constant feeding of the creative imagination, as well as the acquisition of tools and techniques.

Previous publications under the Inscribe imprint include Closure: Contemporary Black British Short Stories (edited by Jacob Ross) and Red: Contemporary Black British Poetry (edited by Kwame Dawes).

Read more about Inscribe’s publications and the Filigree call for submissions.
