How do we venture out onto the thin ice of our own minds without falling through? How do we write poems about our secrets without exposing them; hide behind images in order to reveal? The nature of risk in poetry is entirely relative – a radically gentle poem can be just as dangerous as a disturbingly violent one; it depends on which path is the least taken. This masterclass is all about untaken paths, emotional and linguistic risk, and how we can write ourselves into uncomfortable places, whilst, somehow, miraculously, enjoying it. Zoom’s auto transcript technology will be available.
