From Ovid to Ai, poets throughout history have used the dramatic monologue to explore empathy and otherness. It is often a radical form, playing with gender roles; questioning our norms and assumptions; asking what it is to be human (or not). In this workshop we will experiment with idiolect, dramatic conflict and performance to write new poems, letting others speak through your words. Clare Pollard has written five collections of poetry and edits Modern Poetry in Translation. Her latest book is Fierce Bad Rabbits: The Tales Behind Children’s Picture Books.
