Literary Lit Soc: John Barnie

Friday 14 October 1-3pm
Poetry and the New Nature

The Literary Society director Fiona Owen is joined by John Barnie. The afternoon explores the ways in which poets have responded to nature since the Darwinian revolution and in particular the growing realisation among biologists and naturalists, from Edward O. Wilson to David Attenborough, that the Earth is well into a mass extinction of species which will have consequences for ourselves.

 

John Barnie grew up in Abergavenny in the Usk Valley, on the edge of the Black Mountains. He taught at Copenhagen University from 1969-82, and was editor of the cultural and political magazine Planet from 1990-2006. He has published over 20 collections of poetry and essays including The King of Ashes which won a Wales Book of the Year award. A blues guitarist, he has performed widely with the poetry and blues band Y Bechgyn Drwg/The Bad Boys, and, currently, with Hollow Log. During 2016 he is poet in residence at Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

Literary Lit Soc: Ric Hool

Friday 18 November 1-3pm
Between So Many Words

The Literary Society director Fiona Owen is joined by Ric Hool. During this workshop we shall discuss themes that might inform our poetic writing and consider the determination or 'push' of authorship and the apprehension of readership.

  

For the writing exercise it would be useful if participants brought along any of the following to use as an aide-mémoire: a diary / correspondence / a short story / a journal / a series of pictures (3 or 4) / objects from a holiday / one object from each of several different holidays.

 

Ric Hool’s poetic themes are the psychological and geographical impact of place and space on the human experience. Water is a theme, poured from place to place and from experience to experience: an agent of informing. Ric has nine published collections of poetry, the most recent being Between So Many Words (Red Squirrel Press 2016). He is also a reviewer of poetry in magazines, a creative writing tutor for various literature projects and organizer of the poetry reading series ‘Upstairs at the Hen & Chicks’.

Literary Lit Soc: Karen Ankers

Friday 16 December 1-3pm
Lit soc: Karen Ankers

The Literary Society director Fiona Owen is joined by writer and playwright Karen Ankers. A workshop about writing drama - how to structure a short play and how to give characters a unique and believable voice.

 

Karen Ankers is a former member of the Ucheldre Rep, who has given up performing plays in order to concentrate on writing them.  Her one act plays have been performed in UK, America and Australia and one has recently been made into a short film by director Ben Mole.  Karen has taught Creative Writing classes for the WEA and is a co-founder of Cybi Poets.

  After this workshop, there will be an optional read-around on the theme of Christmas, over tea and mince-pies from the café, so leave an extra hour for us to celebrate in this seasonal Lit Soc way – and do bring something along to read!
