Writers are invited to take part in a two-part poetry workshop responding to the works of artists Emily Floyd and Louise Menzies within the two current exhibitions: Vital Machinery and Keeping it Complex, Keeping it Connected.

In the first workshop session, Neale will give an introductory talk about ekphrastic poetry, and participants will write poems in a guided exercise in response to specific artworks. In the second session, using the poems created in the first workshop, participants will then be guided by Neale through a mixture of collaborative feedback and editing, with a cut-up exercise on the poems that sprung from the first session.

Emma Neale is a Dunedin-based writer, editor, occasional creative writing tutor and the mother of two sons. Her collections of poetry are Sleeve-notes and How to Make a Million (both from Random House) and Spark (from Steele Roberts) The Truth Garden, Tender Machines, and To the Occupant (all from Otago University Press).

Please note attending the second session is optional.

First session:
1pm –2pm, Sunday 5 February
