Where are you right now? What do you notice about your surroundings? So often, we don’t pay much attention to the places we move through every day. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to bring the world around you into the space of your poems.

Poems about travel, about landscape, about memory, about home — they all require a close attention to place, and in this workshop you will develop some practical skills to help focus your attention on place, bringing depth and detail to your poetry. You’ll learn new ways to make places – both familiar and unfamiliar, real and imagined – come alive in your poetry, and make the reader feel as if they’re really there.

Ella Jeffery is an award winning poet. Her first book of poems, Dead Bolt, won the Puncher & Wattmann Prize for a First Book of Poems and is published in June 2020. She is a recipient of the 2019 Queensland Premier’s Young Publishers and Writers Award and her poetry has appeared in many journals and anthologies including Best Australian Poems, Meanjin, Southerly and Griffith Review. She co-edits Stilts, a digital poetry journal, and holds a PhD from Queensland University of Technology, where she currently teaches creative writing.
