Allographic Workshop: The Brain & The City Poetry

Creating new poems about our brains’ relationship to the city, led by Claire Trévien.

A poetry workshop exploring poems that negotiate bodies or brains through the lens of a city, with a focus on work created by disabled poets. The group will then be writing poems about their bodies’ own relationship with its everyday environment. Experienced poets and novices are welcome alike, the workshop will provide techniques and exercises to help make this accessible.  

Claire Trévien is an Anglo-Breton author. Born in Brittany in 1985, she resided in the UK for nearly two decades and performed her work internationally, from South Africa to New Orleans. She is the author of The Shipwrecked House (Penned in the Margins, 2013), Astéronymes (Penned in the Margins, 2016), and most recently the pamphlet Brain Fugue (Verve Poetry Press, 2019). She was a module leader on LCCM's Creative and Professional Writing degree. She has now moved back to her native Brittany.
