Poetic Proximity

Maddie Godfrey

Poetic Proximity is a series of Free Poetry Workshops offers creative engagement for Vincent community members. Over the space of five weeks, workshops will feature a City of Vincent landmark and explore the themes of belonging, home and identity to empower participants to write their own poems.

Suitable for anyone aged 16+ who is enthusiastic about storytelling, these workshops (held via Zoom) embrace a playful approach to writing poetry. Selected participant poems will be curated and displayed in the Beaufort Street Lightbox Gallery.
