Discover the poet in yourself! In this 2-session workshop, you will focus on reading and talking about poetry, as well as writing poetry yourself.
The workshop sessions will be led by Dr. Kila van der Starre, University Utrecht, who specializes in poetry “off the page” in the Netherlands and Flanders. She is interested in the ways people use poetry in their daily lives and the relationship between the medium and the meaning of poetry. Van der Starre's research focuses on poetry in public areas (street poetry), on social media (Instagram poetry), on bodies (poetry tattoos), on objects (poetry products by Plint), on the radio (Candlelight poetry) and in newspapers (poetry in obituaries).
