Writing Science (online course)
During this Live Canon online course, participants will spend 12 weeks exploring how poetry has engaged with scientific ideas from the ancient world to the contemporary. Science will also be used to inspire new poems.
In the first nine weeks of the course participants will be looking at a different area of science each week: mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, sci-fi,medicine, astronomy, geography, botany. In the final three weeks the course will look at the more broad themes of language, imagery, intuition and imagination.
