Writing the In-Between Spaces Workshop
Chain hotels, service stations, shopping centres, airports, waiting rooms – these places of ‘inbetweenness’ can make us feel both that we could be anywhere, and that we are nowhere. This workshop explores the poetry of liminal spaces: we will look at poems set in these places and discuss how they are working, as well as exploring prompts and exercises to write our own liminal space poems.
Jenny Danes (she/her) is a poet and writer based in Norwich. Her work has appeared in magazines including Poetry Wales, The Rialto, Magma, Under the Radar, and bath magg. In 2016 she won The Poetry Business’ New Poets Prize, and her debut pamphlet Gaps was published by smith|doorstop in 2017.
