Join artist Angela Rawlings for a sound and writing workshop, EAR KNOWS THROAT.
The writers will be influenced by the immediate soundscape — which will commence as environmental, but will then move into a brief pre-semantic or proto-semantic improvised sound poetry. Writers are encouraged to notice how what they hear impacts their writing. Do they flow with it, tune it out, incorporate it into their texts, or struggle upstream against the soundscape?
Writers will be invited to contribute to the soundscape. Other writers will continue to write as their peers read, further being influenced by the multiple languages in the soundscape around them.
Everyone who attends is invited to bring their favourite writing material — paper, journal, pen, pencil, crayons, lipstick, markers, mobile phone etc…
