Through a poet's eyes: Dunedin, City of Literature

21 - 25 January 2019

Three days of inspirational fieldwork followed by a two-day poetry workshop, based on campus and presented by Sue Wootton

Dunedin has long been an inspiring city for writers. This course will nurture your muse and exercise your writing muscles, combining workshop sessions with inspirational fieldwork. Using poetry as our guide, we’ll spend three days physically exploring Dunedin’s literary history. We’ll write poems of our own in response to the landscape, architecture, climate and culture. This creative course is suitable for anyone interested in practicing the art of writing poetry. The combination of fieldtrips and workshop time will nourish your creativity and hone your craft, whatever your level of experience.The course involves walking on some days, so a moderate level of fitness is required.

  • Monday, Tuesday: short excursion and writing
  • Wednesday: Full-day trip to Port Chalmers and Aramoana
