This workshop aims to be a meeting point for lovers of poetry and poetry writing. It will explore the best strategies to improve critical reading and poetry writing skills. The first part of each session will teach theory supported by practical exercises, and in the second part poems will be read out and discussed among the participants. Expressive reading will also be studied to prepare participants for recitals of their work.
The objective is to create a space where those who want to can brush up their knowledge of Spanish and Latin American poetry, learn about the most representative poets from past and present, and fine-tune their personal poetic output. In addition, the workshop aims to be a place where poetry lovers can share their experiences and their literary curiosity, and meet poets who give master classes and recitals of their poems in our workshop every year.
