Listen on

Episode notes

Listen to a poetry workshop delivered by Adrian Earles, also known as Think, Write, Fly. Adrian takes you through short snappy exercises to get the writing muscles warmed up and stimulate poem making. Combining our sensory capabilities with the ‘interrupting’ nature of poem making. All with the aim of to deconstruct the elements of your perception, focus in on them to create vibrant lines and images. Adrian uses the language and ideas of beat making and musical production (another Art built on crystalisation and refined focus) to build tools that will free you as a writer to take on ANYTHING! This workshop was hosted by Culture Studio and Aik Saath in February 2021 and delivered online to a cohort of young people in Slough. We have made Adrian’s delivery available for you to enjoy!
