Ancestral Offerings: writing myth in mundane life
Tues 8 February, 6.00pm
Online event - Registration is essential
Romalyn Ante is a Filipino-British, Wolverhampton-based poet, essayist, translator, and editor. Her debut collection, Antiemetic for Homesickness came out with Chatto & Windus in 2020.
In this masterclass, we will look at the art of retelling myths through poetry. Romalyn will show you how she incorporated Philippine myths and legends when she worked on Antiemetic for Homesickness. We will also look at other poets' work and explore how you can utilise your own myths and legends to bring out the heart of your poem. You do not need to have full knowledge of your myths, just be willing to be surprised!
This class is free but by application. It is for committed poets, so applicants should include a record of two publications in journals.
