LEWES - workshop, STOP ALL THE CLOCKS with Anne-Marie Fyfe
Wallace Stevens embraces the Disillusionment of Ten O’Clock, Medbh McGuckian delights in Four O’Clock, Summer Street, & Baudelaire relishes his isolation At One O’Clock in the Morning. Kipling, of course, recommends filling every second of the unforgiving minute: even Horace urges us to seize the day! Why do clocks & watches, & particular times of day, & the inevitable passing of time — slowly or apace — fascinate poets & writers? And what part can ‘time’ play in our writing, in our memories & imaginings.
Anne-Marie’s fifth poetry collection, House of Small Absences (Seren Books) has just been published. Born in Cushendall, County Antrim, Anne-Marie lives in London where she works as an arts organiser. She has won the Academi Cardiff International Poetry Prize, has run Coffee-House Poetry’s readings & classes at London’s leading live literature venue, the Troubadour, since 1997, is Poetry Co-ordinator for the annual John Hewitt International Summer School in Armagh City, & is a former chair of the Poetry Society. www.annemariefyfe.com
