Join much-loved local poet and publisher Philip Rush on the second of our Dialect Craft Series using the principle of shuhari to learn the art of poetic form. Shu is learn the rules; ha is break the rules; ri is transcend the rules.

Participants will work with sonnets as a foundational form, moving on to the ode, heroic couplet, elegy, ballad and dream vision. The ‘dream vision’ and the ‘elegy’ are defined by content and theme rather than by form per se, but as genre they are interesting applications of form.

Participants will create new work and engage critically and constructively with others. A great opportunity to learn from a true master.
