Building on the success of the 2020 Pop Matters series, this workshop offers a warm and upbeat 'studio' for musing on the relationship between creative practice and pop music. We’ll focus mostly on pop music and love/devotion, making space for writing which borrows from the form of pop music or writes to specific pop artists. We'll consider how pop can offer the emotional and structural inspiration for other kinds of creative output, the role of pop in everyday life/life-writing and the mythologies we give to pop icons in writing. Designed for anyone who wants to flirt with a bit of pop in their practice, this workshop will feature music, free association, reading and stimulating activities for writing.

 

Key writers include: Kevin Killian, Dana Ward, Anne Boyer, Ian Macartney
