Creation to Craft


Please join us for an evening with poet Kate Rogers for a discussion about the principles of editing poetry. She will illustrate the process using before and after examples from poems by W.B. Yeats, as well as sharing early and finished examples of one or two of her own published poems. WiPS member Susan Lavender will take part in the evening to give voice to the poetry of Yeats. 

Kate will offer tips on creating fresh and original metaphors, avoiding cliché, editing poetry for brevity and avoiding the grammar of prose. The session will also include a writing and editing activity for the audience, with time to share work at the end of the evening. 

 

Kate Rogers' new poetry collection, Out of Place, will be published by Toronto-based Aeolus House in the summer of 2017. Her poetry is forthcoming in the anthologies, Catherines, the Great (Oolichan), and Twin Cities Cinema (Hong Kong-Singapore). Her poems have appeared in: Quixotica: Poems East of La Mancha; OfZoos; The Guardian; Eastlit; Asia Literary Review; Cha: an Asian Literary Journal; Morel; The Goose: a journal of Arts, Environment and Culture (Wilfred Laurier University); Kyoto Journal; ASIATIC: the Journal of the International Islamic University of Malaysia; Many Mountains Moving; Orbis International; Contemporary Verse II and The New Quarterly, among others. She lectures in literature and media studies at the Community College of City University in Hong Kong.
