Adelaide’s History Festival runs for the month of May, celebrating South Australia’s history through a vast program of events. We’re proud to have had a hand in organising The Memory Place: Poetry Writing Workshops with Caroline Reid – Poet and Performer.
A series of writing workshops open to anyone who wants to creatively explore family or personal history through poetry. The emphasis is on writing poems that follow the natural rhythms of speech (free verse) and are built on sensory observations: colour, texture, shape, scent, sound, taste and touch. Working from a photograph, a treasured object, piece of clothing or simply your memory, these workshops will help you shape poems within the framework of your own personal history.
Caroline Reid is a poet, performer and educator who found her feet as a writer in the theatre. She is a multi-finalist in the Australian Poetry Slam and her debut collection, SIARAD (ES-press2020), won 2nd prize in the Poetry Book Awards 2022.
