– poetry workshop with Les Wicks-

5 hours plus substantial prior editorial work.





Venue: Melbourne, Brighton.

Sunday 20 March 10.00 to 3.30 with a 30 minute break for bring-your-own lunch.


Venue: Sydney, Glebe

Sunday 3 April 10.00 to 3.30 with a 30 minute break for bring-your-own lunch.


This template, first run a year ago, was a complete charge for everyone.

One of the country’s leading poetry facilitators will be giving workshops in Melbourne & Sydney.


This project will consist of three components.


Everyone gets a strategy sheet on editing their work.

Then, participants will email four poems (maximum 30 lines each) to Les 14 days prior to the workshop.

The poems with commentary will be distributed to the participants four days prior to their workshop.

Participants should bring a copy of the entire commentary document to the workshop.


On the day of the workshop we will work intensively through each participant’s poems building on prior suggestions and experiencing  a dynamic interplay of ideas/insights.



Should they so wish, participants will have a chance to have a piece published in the e-mag Australian Poetry Collaboration, which is widely read and archived by the National Library’s Pandora.


This program is designed for people who have a familiarity with the workshopping process. It is strictly limited to only 6 attendees per location.


Bookings must be made by 28 February for Melbourne & 13 March for Sydney.



Cost $80.
