Ever wondered what objects dream about? How do you write an action poem? Can you write a poem about sport? Or Food? YES YOU CAN.
Ever wondered what objects dream about? How do you write an action poem? Can you write a poem about sport? Or Food? Yes you can. This holiday workshop with Harry Laing will make you want to write for your life and you’ll also have a great time. Maybe you already have some great ideas and need some good shapes to put them in. Or you can be inspired by Harry and try experimenting with rap, rhyme, riddles, chants, narrative shape poems and more. There’ll also be time to get some tips from Harry on how to perform your poems. Harry Laing is a children’s author, poet and comic performer. His second collection for children MoonFish is a poetry picture book for six - eleven year olds and features art by some of Australia’s best known illustrators including Shaun Tan, Leigh Hobbs and Anne Ryan. Shoctopus (2015), his first collection of poetry for 6-12 yr olds, has proved a hit with teachers and kids alike. Harry is in demand for his poetry performances and workshops in schools and has presented at Children’s Literature Festivals. Book and pay in any Blue Mountains Library Branch.
