We invite you to be a part of this. Online Workshops led by Artistic Director Anna Furse introduce a relaxing and enjoyable way of working with, through and from the body towards creative writing individually and collectively. Inspired by the Blason - a Renaissance poetic form in which the smallest body part such as an eyebrow or earlobe is praised by the poet - participants are encouraged to convert negative self-image into liberating selfie-eulogy. Workshops have proved very successful with arts and health workers, students, medics, artists and non-professional adults of all ages.
The results, that become your contribution to the Dear Body gallery, might include a short piece of writing, a photograph or drawing with/without recorded voiceover, short video or recorded song.
Every contribution is added as there is no selection process. Anonymity will be guaranteed. https://www.dearbodyblason.com
Participants have reported feeling more positive at the end of a workshop and are often very happy with their writing. Frequently participants go away and create something new in another media, inspired by the workshop, that they then submit for publication.
