Sarah Pearce is our special April 2018 Adelaide City Library Poet-in-Residence with her residency, Women Write Together.
This project is about women writing together, collaborating, borrowing, even stealing… Ever heard it and wished you’d written it? Ever deeply connected your own experiences to those described by a poet, a poem or a single line? Let’s do it! Let’s be inspired by Tempest, Bird, Plath, Smith, Dickinson and Sappho. Let’s borrow, build and converse, to create poems together, woven from multiple voices. Performance will also be collaborative, as we speak each others words.
In seeking to liberate and promote women’s voices, particularly the collaboration of those voices, these workshops are open to anybody who identifies as a woman or girl. I aim to create a safe space, wherein women are free to express themselves, to borrow from each other and to collaborate artistically. The focus of these workshops will be on women’s experience, both shared and individual, and women’s voices, from the past to the present.
