Walking London: A Site-Specific poetry workshop
To coincide with the Formerly exhibition at the Poetry Café, featuring poems by Tamar Yoseloff and photographs by Vici MacDonald, Tamar Yoseloff will lead a writing workshop focusing on the city as a source for new poems. This one-day session will begin with a walk through Clerkenwell and Holborn, focusing on aspects of London which are normally overlooked or hidden. We’ll discuss psychogeography, street photography, signage, urban art, guerrilla gardening, and poems and texts by Roy Fisher and Iain Sinclair, among others.
Participants will meet at Chancery Lane tube station on the Central Line at 10:30am. The afternoon session will be held at the Poetry Society in Covent Garden.
Prices £50 full price, or £40 Poetry Society members and concessions.

Formerly, a pamphlet collection incorporating photographs by Vici MacDonald is published by Hercules Editions in June.
